Exercising and eating a diet rich in calcium are the first steps towards maintaining healthy bones. However, adjusting your 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 your bone health. Osteoporosis is a preventable and treatable disease, and a bone density test can help determine the current health of your bones.
Healthy bones are strong and 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 conduct a bone density test. The hip and spine are commonly tested sites and tests are simple, safe, and painless; most take only a few minutes.
Talk to your primary care doctor about getting a bone densitometry test and take control of your health. To schedule an appointment at Florida Medical Clinic, contact us today.
