Abstract: The whole world has been affected by musculoskeletal issues to a longer extent and the global burden of the disease reveals this significant information A huge amount of money is spent on this musculoskeletal related treatment which is at par with 3% of gross national product per year Another important side is the aggregate life years of impairment that is said to be 6.8% for the last three decades and this has risen by 45% currently As per universal statistics people in the age group of 45-60 years are commonly affected by a bone related disease called osteoporosis in which the bones become very weak and it is easily damaged Most commonly such fractures are possible at wrists pelvis hip joints long bones and spines All around the world men and women both get affected by this osteoporosis injuries and the risk factor being one out of three for men and one out of five for women A study also revealed that for every three seconds an occurrence of osteoporosis related issues is found In 2010 a study had been carried out and it is observed that 9 million people are affected by osteoporosis fracture all over the world that includes 1.4 million vertebral fracture 1.7 million forearm fractures and 1.6 million hip fractures It further states that about 7,00,000 people are affected by vertebral compression fractures which falls under the category of osteoporosis fracture that occurs at spines newlineKnowledgeable sources revealed that about 27 million osteoporosis patients are found only in India and there has been a continual and rapid rise in this data every year Compared to developed countries Indian women particularly those who belong to 30-60 age groups and possessing poor economic background have very less density of inorganic substance in bones at all the necessary spots In a human body femur bone is the most important and strongest bone as almost the whole body weight is shared alone by femur bone
