Did you leave the office confused wondering what you should and shouldn’t do?We hear that story all the time. We don’t fault the doctors; the system no longer has the ability to allow lengthy conversations about how to manage osteopenia or osteoporosis. We can help you understand what you can do to stay mobile and independent and set up a successful long term approach to this diagnosis.54 million Americans, 60% of people older than 55, have osteoporosis according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation. Every year there are more spinal vertebral fractures than cardiac events and stroke combined. It is a very real problem. At Penrose Physical Therapy we want to help those age 55+ to minimize their risk for fracture and increase their bone density.
