Osteoporosis is an age-related decrease in bone mass. The bone becomes more porous and brittle, thus is more prone to breakage ie fractures. Osteoporosis-type fractures are usually sustained with minimal force, and common areas involved include the hip joints, wrists and spine.
Osteoporosis, just like many chronic diseases such as hypertension, might not make one feel sick or have any symptoms. However, if left undetected and untreated, can predispose one to sustaining hip fractures after a light fall. This will require surgery and might affect mobility and walking independence.
If you have any of these risk factors, you should do a bone health check and screen for osteoporosis.
Subtle symptoms of osteoporosis include loss of height and progressive bending of the back (or kyphosis). If you have any of these symptoms or risk factors, you should come forth for screening.
We have assembled some packages to help our new patients.
