Postmenopausal osteoporosis refers to osteoporosis that develops after menopause. It is common among women after menopause. The bones become weak and brittle, so they break easily. It is characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue leading to bone fragility and an increased susceptibility to fractures. Common symptoms include back pain caused by fractured or compressed vertebrae and loss of height over time. The global postmenopausal osteoporosis market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years due to the increasing awareness about the effective treatments available for postmenopausal osteoporosis.
