Comprehensive Treatment Program for Those with Low Bone Density
Osteoporosis is a disease which causes bones to weaken and fracture. Most often, these fractures happen at the hip, spine and wrist. There are many factors that can lead to osteoporosis; many of them are modifiable. Those who are taking long-term steroids, smoke or do not consume enough calcium are at higher risk to develop osteoporosis.
Other factors include:
- Increased age
- Being a woman
- Family history
- Diet, medications
- Sedentary lifestyle
Highland Park Center offers a comprehensive treatment program for those with low bone density. Resistance and postural exercises, balance training and proper body mechanics instruction are components of our program. A physician referral is needed to start the program.
