Osteoporosis is a disease that causes weak, thinning bones. This can leave fragile bones at greater risk of breaking. 

Our Approach to Osteoporosis Diagnosis

Osteoporosis affects more than 10 million Americans over the age of 50, most commonly in the hips, spine and wrists. If left untreated, symptoms may advance to include broken bones, low back pain or a hunched back. 

The exact cause for osteoporosis is unknown, but a number of factors contribute to the disease including: 

  • Aging 
  • Female gender 
  • Having small bones 
  • Lack of physical activity or exercise 
  • Smoking 
  • Excessive drinking 
  • Diet low in calcium and vitamin D 
  • Certain medications 
  • Family history of osteoporosis 

The best way to diagnose osteoporosis is with a bone density screening.
