Description:
Bone health affects every generation in our communities. From the youngest to the oldest patients, their bone is constantly remodelling by resorbing old bone and forming new bone. Interestingly, we obtain a whole new skeleton every seven years. During adolescence bone formation is greater than resorption causing the trabecular like honeycomb structures within to thicken and strengthen. Many factors will influence this such as lifestyle, diet and exercise. This process plateaus in early adult life. During an adult’s third decade, bone begins to thin out
