Bone Density Treatment
Bone Density Treatment at Hillside Medical Office
As we age, our bones slowly begin to reach a point where they loose some of their strength. For some people, this process makes their bones brittle to the point that a minor fall, or even something like a heavy cough can cause serious damage.
Osteoporosis is most often age related, but there are factors that can accelerate the weakening of the bones, such as:
- Poor Nutrition
- Low Physical Activity
- Low Body Weight
The condition is typically diagnosed using bone densitometry, an X-Ray based testing method used to check the hips, wrists, or spine. Hillside Medical Office provides treatment for many patients with bone density issues – please contact our offices for further information on what we may be able to do for you.
