Osteoporosis and Bone Health Care Center
People with osteoporosis often don’t know they have it until they experience a bone fracture. These fractures are painful and can be life threatening. Good nutrition, cessation of smoking, weight bearing exercise and supplements can slow the loss of bone density while certain medications can help stop or reverse the process.
We provide comprehensive screening, prevention, and treatment services for osteoporosis. Osteoporosis care involves a multi-faceted approach to bone health. Teenagers and premenopausal women need to optimize their bone density through diet and exercise. Postmenopausal women and men over the age of 65 often have undetected osteoporosis and may need treatment. Some may need blood screening to rule out any other causes of low bone density other than osteoporosis
