Through our Osteoporosis Program, we assist, educate and support individuals with osteoporosis. Osteoporosis affects approximately 25 percent of women 65 years old and older, which is why osteoporosis screenings and care are part of our women's health services.
Osteoporosis occurs when the density and quality of bone mass decreases, making bones fragile and susceptible to fractures. The condition commonly occurs in the hip, spine and wrist. These injuries can lead to additional health problems, expenses and a decrease in quality of life. The good news, however, is that osteoporosis is preventable and treatable through an integrated program of education, healthy lifestyle habits and exercise.
Our comprehensive program includes bone mineral density (BMD) testing and incorporates the most current research in the treatment of osteoporosis. Working together, we can assist your referring physician with the early diagnosis of this debilitating disease.
Participating in our Osteoporosis Program
Our program is designed for anyone with osteoporosis or experiencing its early symptoms. The program is also open to individuals interested in learning more about osteoporosis. All participants need a physician's order.
Our program also provides complimentary transportation for patients with no means of transportation available to them.
