Prevention and treatment of osteoporosis are under appreciated in midlife women’s health issues. However, every 3 seconds an osteoporosis-related fracture occurs. And once an osteoporosis-related fracture occurs 1 in 5 women will re-fracture in the next 5 years.
Fractures are preventable. Evaluation of bone strength starts with a state-of-the-art screening DXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) to assess bone density and bone quality. Understanding what those T-scores and what your bone density measurements mean for you is important. Our muscles and bones keep us mobile, independent, and strong. My goal is to help every woman understand and manage the risk factors for bone loss strength and find strategies to maintain bone strength, and prevent fractures and falls.
