Christmas is the busiest times of the year, especially if you don’t have much help around the house and there are so many chores to do.  Just imagine rigorously cleaning the house; walking mile upon mile and waiting in the line for hours when shopping for gifts and groceries; the endless hours preparing and cooking food plus the everyday tasks such as washing dishes and laundry.

Before long, you get tired and exhausted.  Your back aches with the kind of pain that makes you want to rest, sit back and relax.  Does resting help in anyway?  Yes, but only temporarily.  Your back ache, especially when it is recurrent, may be more than just a minor muscle strain.  It could very well be a sign of osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become very weak due to excessive loss of bone tissue.  Bone is a living tissue that is constantly being remodeled.  New bone is formed and old ones are broken down from birth up to the mid-thirties when bone mass is at its peak.  At around the age of 35, the process shifts. More bone is broken down than formed and when bone loss becomes excessive, the bones get weaker and break easily.  Even simple tasks such as bending to pick up an object can break you back.
