Osteoporosis

Our Osteoporosis program focused on improving balance, strength, flexibility, functional abilities, and posture for patients while reducing the risk of falls.

Osteoporosis is a disease that affects people of all ages, sex, and ethnic background. Osteoporosis results in the reduction of bone mass where bones become fragile and can easily fracture. It primarily affects the hip, vertebral column, and wrists. 

Twenty-eight million Americans, 80% of which are women, have osteoporosis or osteopenia. Some of the first signs are a decrease in height, protruding abdomen, postural changes, and/or fractures.

Common risk factors for osteoporosis include: 

  • Family History
  • Post Menopausal women
  • Thin or obese women
  • Sedentary lifestyles
  • Over exercisers
  • Taking thyroid and/or steroid medication
  • Smoking
  • Eating disorders
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Diabetes

How We Help

  • Gait and Balance Assessments to identify factors that may lead to falls
  • Body Mechanics Training to help prevent flexion stresses on the vertebral bodies
  • Posture Assessment to address stresses on the spine during non-movement
  • Exercise to strengthen spinal muscles and improve bone density

Until you get to Physical Therapy:

  • Avoid bending at the waist
  • Avoid twisting
  • Avoid prolonged sitting
  • Utilize good body mechanics with your daily activities
