Osteoporosis And Low Bone Mass Treatments

Osteoporosis is a bone disease that affects as many as 2 million Canadians — one in four women and one in eight men over 50 is affected. Although it’s often thought of as an old woman’s disease, osteoporosis can strike anyone at any age. Osteoporosis occurs when there is low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, leaving bones fragile and highly susceptible to fractures, especially in the hips, spine or wrists. In many cases, people are not aware that they have the disease until a bone breaks.

How Physiomed Can Help

Whether you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis or would like to prevent it, Physiomed can help with a prescribed exercise program under the guidance of a trained healthcare professional. Physical activity helps to build and maintain bone strength, improve muscle strength to support your bones, and improve posture, balance and coordination to reduce the risk of falling, helping patients stay active and alleviating pain. We can also help with nutritional and lifestyle counseling, to be sure you’re getting adequate amounts of calcium and vitamin D for your bone health. Using our proprietary Physiomed Healthscore health assessment system, we can determine whether or not you are at risk for osteoporosis, so you can take steps to prevent the disease before it occurs.
If you’ve been diagnosed with Osteoporosis or think you may be at risk, book an appointment today.
