Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your mother has decreased mineralization in the bones of the lower back and the hip area. There is the reduced height in few bones of the L1 vertebra and is called a collapse of the vertebra. This can be due to nutritional imbalance of vitamin D and calcium, or it can be due to any other problem causing a diffuse decrease in the mineralization of the bones. You can talk to your doctors and get an MRI scan and DEXA scan (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) done to know about the conditions of the bones in more detail.
