Osteoporosis Clinic

Many people are unaware of the link between fractures and osteoporosis. If you are over the age of 50 and are diagnosed with a fracture, there is a good chance that your fracture may be related to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass, which makes bones more likely to break. An estimated 54 million Americans have osteoporosis or low bone mass, causing over 2.3 million fractures each year in older adults. Fortunately, there is a lot you can do to prevent fragility fractures. Some things that can help are a balanced diet, exercise, medications, and our team of orthopedic specialists at Excela Health’s Osteoporosis Clinic.
