Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease resulting in diminished bone mass and altered bone microstructure, which leads to more fragile bones that have higher risk of fractures. Approximately 44 million people have been diagnosed for osteoporosis nationwide. It also causes nearly 1.5 million fractures annually. In order to prevent from such bone loss and to enhance bone quality, effective clinical treatments, e.g. using non-pharmacological approach, are in great need.
