Osteoporosis Intervention

Purpose


A decrease in bone strength makes a person more susceptible to broken bones. It affects more than 25 million people (women and men) annually. Our  specialty-trained physical or occupational therapist will assess a person's body mechanics, strength, mobility, flexibility, balance and posture to provide individualized treatment to manage osteoporosis or osteopenia.

 

Goal

  • To provide instructions on safe and proper exercises for those diagnosed with osteoporosis and osteopenia. This is important because certain exercises can put you at greater risk for broken bones
  • To provide education concerning home safety as well as how to perform daily activities in a safe manner without increasing risk for falls and broken bones
  • To provide recommendations on adaptive equipment as needed.

 

Who Can Benefit

 

Anyone diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia
