Caption: Representation of the modification of the silhouette linked to osteoporosis (vertebral compression). On the left, silhouette of a young woman (straight stature). In the middle, 60-year-old woman affected by medium osteoporosis. She loses a few centimetres and vaults. On the right, 70-year-old woman affected by severe osteoporosis. The vertebral compression is very much pronounced with a tip over of the pelvis forward. We observe a dorsal kyphosis, commonly called 'witch's hump'. The vertebral compression is due to fractures of various vertebrae (generally dorsal and lumbar), made fragile by osteoporosis.
