Osteoporosis Treatment

Options to strengthen bone mass.

Osteoporosis is a chronic condition that requires long-term treatment. While it’s not possible to fully reverse the condition, it is possible to slow down the degenerative process and strengthen your existing bone mass. At Florida Medical Clinic, we help you maintain a strong, active life by monitoring and managing your chronic health concerns, including bone density loss that often occurs with age.

One of the ways we’re able to determine the health of your bones is by using a bone densitometry test. This is a simple, safe, and painless way to assess the mineral density in the bones of the hip or spine. The tests are quick and easy, taking only a few minutes each. Bone densitometry tests produce detailed images of your bones, helping us to customize a treatment plan based on your results.

If the results of a patient’s bone density test indicate that osteoporosis treatment may be necessary – or if a patient comes to Florida Medical Clinic with an existing osteoporosis diagnosis – our team can provide a comprehensive range of treatments, including:

  • Lifestyle recommendations such as tailored exercise plans designed to help strengthen the bones and joints
  • Dietary counseling — to help patients increase their calcium intake to strengthen bones
  • Medications — to help slow the process of bone loss

Your osteoporosis treatment will be tracked through our innovative electronic health records system. This means that any of your Florida Medical Clinic physicians can instantly review your treatment plan and any other complications that might have arisen as a result of the condition. Using this innovative electronic system, we’re able to streamline care between departments, resulting in a more efficiently coordinated osteoporosis treatment for our patients.
