OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis is a bone disease which affects both men and women.  It is a “silent disease” whereby the density of the bone reduces over time, making it brittle and more prone to a fracture, yet you may not be aware of this happening.

Often back pain is the first symptom that osteoporotic patients experience or their condition may be diagnosed after sustaining a broken bone. 

If you are concerned you may have osteoporosis, the first step is to obtain a quick, painless DEXA scan which accurately measures your bone density of your hips and spine. This scan can be easily accessed by having a chat with your GP.

If you have been diagnosed with osteopenia (early signs of osteoporosis) or osteoporosis, we are experienced in designing individualised exercise programmes for prevention and treatment.  These combine weight-bearing exercise, core and back strengthening and flexibility training, as supported by current scientific evidence.
