Osteopenia and Osteoporosis are conditions affecting the strength and density of our bones. One in three women and one in five men can be diagnosed with these conditions, but importantly there are multiple risk factors that contribute to their development. Specially trained and qualified Chartered Physiotherapists play a vital role in assessing and managing people with Osteopenia and Osteoporosis.
By understanding how our lifestyle choices can influence our bone health and consequently our long term quality of life, proactive steps can be taken to minimise or lessen our risks of developing these conditions; specially trained Bone Health Chartered Physiotherapists are an essential advice and educational resource in this regard. Within our clinic we have individual and specific ‘Bone Health’ assessment and treatment sessions available, in addition to ‘Bone Health Exercise Classes’; all with our specialised Bone Health Chartered Physiotherapists.
