You have the greatest amount of bone density between the ages of 18-25. The more bone density you have during these years, the less likely you are to break a bone or develop osteoporosis later in life. As you age, you begin to lose more bone density than you make.
Touro Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Lance Estrada, explains what you can do to help maintain bone density as you age.
