Osteoporosis Clinic

The POSM Osteoporosis Clinic specializes in the detection and management of osteoporosis.

The POSM Osteoporosis Clinic specializes in the detection and management of osteoporosis. We treat the loss of bone density and the full spectrum of fractures and degenerative conditions that accompany this serious bone disease. We also provide rehabilitation as well as preventative services all under one roof.

The purpose of the POSM Osteoporosis Clinic is to evaluate and treat patients with osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a common condition affecting both men and women. It is estimated that almost half of all women over the age of 50, and one in four men, will break a bone as a result of osteoporosis. As a result, this is an important disease to evaluate and treat as early as possible.

Osteoporosis is often called a silent disease because bone loss occurs without symptoms. The first symptom is often a fracture. By that time, a woman may have already lost 30% or more of her bone mass. When diagnosed early, POSM Osteoporosis Clinicians can initiate preventative lifestyle changes and treatments before additional bone loss and fractures can occur.

Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a bone disease where low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, lead to bone fragility and an increased susceptibility to fractures, especially of the hip, spine and wrist.
