Osteoporosis affects millions of Americans. Osteoporosis – weakening of the bone structure – can lead to fractures, chronic pain and disability. Osteoporosis preventive treatments can help decrease the chances of these disease complications.
We offer noninvasive painless simple osteoporosis screening with DEXA scanning with an axial DEXA scanner that scans the spine and hips for signs of osteoporosis. Our DEXA osteoporosis testing is available at our Clinton Hill office. Any of our primary care doctors can order the test and recommend dietary, lifestyle changes, supplements and if necessary prescribe osteoporosis prescription medications.
