Ensuring a Strong, Healthy Foundation

Exercising and eating a diet rich in calcium are both positive steps that you and your family can take to maintain healthy bones. But diet, calcium supplements, and exercise may not be enough to protect you from loss of bone mass and fractures. The medical staff of Florida Medical Clinic believes that the more you know about osteoporosis, the better prepared you’ll be to take charge of keeping your bones healthy. Osteoporosis is a preventable and treatable disease.

Because you cannot see bone loss, a Bone Density Test is taken to determine the health of your bones. Normal healthy bones are strong, dense, and much less likely to break or fracture. Osteoporotic bones are thin and porous, often taking on the appearance of a hardened sponge. We encourage you to consult with our staff to help you become familiar with the Bone Density Test. The hip and spine, are commonly tested sites; and the tests are simple, safe, and painless; most take only a few minutes.
