Orthopedic Care for Osteoporosis

You are at a museum and see a real skeleton or fossil of a tyrannosaurus rex (T-Rex) dinosaur. While examining and reading about it, you may think to yourself that all bones are dead and extinct, just like the dinosaur itself. Although the bones in museums may be dry, hard, or crumbly, the bones in the human body are different. The 206 bones that make up our skeletons are very much alive, growing, and changing all the time.
