| Osteoporosis is a musculoskeletal disorder with compromised bone strength that predisposes an individual to have an increased fracture risk. Osteoporosis can occur at all ages. It can affect men, women, and young adults. Osteoporosis affects 55% of people over the age of 50, making it more common than breast, uterine and ovarian cancer all combined. Osteoporosis is related to fractures, which occur in 1 of every 2 women and can be life-altering.
Our physical therapists specialize in the health of women and can help with the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. With treatment through exercise, stretching, and posture, women can improve their quality of life, bone strength, and overall flexibility and endurance. At PT Center for Women, our patients will first be evaluated and an individualized treatment program will be determined. This may include exercises, education in posture, body mechanics, and safe movement.
