Osteoporosis is a condition that affects the bones, causing them to become weaker and more likely to fracture. If you are worried about osteoporosis you should visit your GP for a referral for a scan.
The National Osteoporosis Society have a helpline (0845 450 0230) staffed by nurses who can answer medical queries relating to osteoporosis. There are also local support groups held in Liverpool and Wigan – please click here for further information about these groups.
