The Impact
of the Aging
Process on
Bone Health
As people grow older, changes
in posture and gait are common.
People lose bone density or
mass, particularly women after
the menopause.
Vertebra in the spine are separated by
a gel-like cushion called a ‘disk’. As an
individual ages, the midriff becomes
shorter as disks lose fluid and become
thinner.
Bones, including vertebrae, also lose
calcium and mineral content with age,
leaving each bone thinner. The spinal
column becomes compressed and
curved. In some people, aging and
overall use of the spine creates bone
spurs on the vertebrae.
As a person grows older, their foot
arches become less pronounced,
3
causing a slight loss of height. The
long bones of the legs and arms
do not change length, but they do
become more brittle due to mineral
loss, making the limbs appear longer
compared with the shortened torso.
In time, joints become stiffer and less
flexible. Joint fluid may decrease, and
cartilage may rub together and wear
away. Calcification may occur due to
minerals accumulating around joints,
particularly the shoulder. Meanwhile
knee, hip, and finger joints may lose
cartilage.
Fortunately, certain measures have
been shown to help protect and
improve bone health.
