Caption

Osteoporosis. Coloured X-ray, side view, of the lumbar (lower) spine of a sixty-eight year old patient with osteoporosis. The second and third vertebrae (top two blocks) have become compressed and are touching each other, which causes pain and immobility. In a healthy spine the vertebrae are all evenly spaced. Osteoporosis causes low bone density and mass, and is most common in post- menopausal women. It may be prevented by a diet rich in calcium and regular weight-bearing exercise.
