Expert Osteoporosis Care
Preventive care plays a significant role in your health and overall well-being. Given the risk factors for osteoporosis and your history of fracture, you may be at elevated risk for another fracture. Osteoporosis is sometimes called the “silent disease” because many do not know or assume they do not have it until they suffer a fracture.
What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a disease of the bones that causes them to break down over time, making you more likely to have a fracture injury. It’s caused by a variety of things, like normal aging, gender, smoking, drinking, lifestyle changes, taking drugs, certain illnesses, and having a broken bone.
It can be serious if left undiagnosed or untreated. There’s no cure for it once you know it’s there, but there are treatments that can help make your bones stronger and less likely to break.
