Osteoporosis/Bone Health

Bone is living tissue; it’s constantly changing, with new bone replacing older bone. However, when the body fails to form enough new bone, bone density diminishes, fracture risk increases and conditions like osteoporosis may develop.  Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease. It’s is a chronic, progressive disease in which bone mass deteriorates — often in the spine, hip or wrist —and becomes brittle.  The good news is that there are things you can do to reduce your risk and strengthen your bones even if you’ve already developed osteoporosis or osteopenia. At OPA, our bone health specialists offer education and consultation, evaluation, and treatments that range from basic nutrition and exercise plans to injectable medicine.
