Introduction: Osteoporosis is a preventable and treatable disease that thins and weakens your bones, making them fragile and more likely to break. The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) estimates as many as eight million women and two million men in the United States have osteoporosis. Ultrasound uses sound waves to measure bone density, and it may be used to measure bone density at the heel, which may be useful in determining a person's fracture risk.

Despite the fact that HFs are usually manifested during late perimenopause and early postmenopause, between 60% and 80% of women will complain of HFs ever since the transition phase (Gold E et al., 2006); Nevertheless, 55% of women may complain of HFs before menstruation anomalies occur (Reed SD, 2014) and they may last even up to the 6th or even the 7th decade of a woman's life. (Freeman EW, 2001; Barnabei 2002, 2005).
