Osteoporosis is not just an Old Person’s disease.

Troubling Statistics

Osteoporosis is not just an Old Person's Disease.

  • 50% of Women over 50 will suffer from an Osteoporotic fracture. 25% of Men over 50 will suffer an Osteoporotic fracture.
  • Even after major fracture surgery, 80% of patients are STILL not treated for the real cause, Osteoporosis or weak bones.
  • Steroids are a well known cause of early osteoporosis, but recent studies show that medications like acid reducers and anti-depressants are even worse offenders at causing early osteoporosis--even in young patients.

Symptoms

Do you or a loved one have any of these symptoms?

  • Severe Back Pain?
  • Failed Back Surgery?
  • Loss of Height?

Benefits of Screening.

A bone density or DEXA test determines if you have low bone density, which increases you risk for fractures from weak bones. All too often weak bones (Osteoporosis) can be prevented with diet, supplements and avoiding certain medications.

Even with normal bone density, you can still be at risk of fracture due to poor bone health.

Unfortunately, too many surgeons operate on spinal fractures but never medically treat the underlying cause of weak bones, Osteoporosis. This means patients keep getting more fractures. This would be like a cardiologist fixing a blockage in the heart, but not treating high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
