Osteoporosis



Osteoporosis is a progressive disease in which bones gradually become weaker, causing increased susceptibility to bone fractures and changes in posture. The disease often progresses without any symptoms or pain. Many times, osteoporosis is not discovered until weakened bones cause painful fractures in the back, wrist or hips. Once total bone mass has peaked-around age 35-all adults start to lose bone density. In women, the rate of bone loss speeds up after menopause, when estrogen levels fall.

Vibration therapy, offered at Cornwall Spine Care Plus+, has shown great promise in slowing the progression of osteopenia and osteoporosis and helping the bone maintain strength and integrity. Patients interested in preventing bone density loss can book an appointment at Cornwall Spine Care Plus+ to see if vibration therapy is right for them.

The team at Cornwall Spine Care Plus+ understands that the treatment of Osteoporosis should not be a 'crisis intervention', but rather a lifelong attempt at development and preservation of bone mass. It is estimated that 50% of osteoporotic hip fractures and 90% of spinal compression fractures are preventable.
