Osteoporosis Clinic

At our Clinic, we help you keep healthy bones...for a healthy life

Our overall objective, working with you, your doctor and other health professionals, is to prevent your bone loss from affecting your quality of life. We work with you to improve posture, flexibility and strength, prevent falls and fractures, reduce spine deformities and chronic pain. If you have suffered a fracture due to your osteoporosis, we can also work with you to restore function.

How our Program works

Your evaluation begins with a complete history and physical examination, followed by several additional, important steps

  • Assessment for fracture risk
  • Evaluation for reversible causes of bone loss
  • Interpretation of your DXA bone density test
  • An exercise program tailored for you
  • A nutritional evaluation
  • Spinal fracture assessments
