As a bone health specialist, I love October for the skeletons! (and if I’m being honest the Reese’s pieces too!)
Those spooky skeletons we see on Halloween represent the bones that give us mobility, protect our vital organs and contain a reservoir of essential proteins and minerals.
But what’s really scary? Hip fracture rates. For women over age 65 who sustain a hip fracture, 30% will die within 1 year. 20% lose independent or do not walk or live independently again.
This does NOT have to be you, your mother, your grandmother, your sister, your daughter or your friend.
What’s not scary? DXA scans at Bone & Body Women’s Health.
There is no long wait time, no wondering about results and next steps. DXA’s are performed, interpreted and shared with you that day. Convenient and thorough to prioritize your bone health.
Routine screening with DXA scans and a fracture risk assessment proactively measures bone mineral density and strength. Beyond the bones, a DXA we can measure amount of lean body mass versus fat mass which gives us a snapshot of your body composition to help guide your exercise goals and even determines cardiovascular risk.
