Your bones play several important roles in your body. They provide structure, protect the organs and anchor the muscles. They are constantly changing as well, with old bone breaking down and new bone growing in its place. However, the majority of patients reach peak bone mass around 30 years of age, and there are a number of controllable factors that can negatively affect the health of your bones, including:
A low-calcium diet
Lack of physical activity
Certain medications (e.g., long-term use of corticosteroid therapy)

Our program includes:

Bone density scan and interpretation of results
Exercise and physical activity
Fall prevention assessment
Fracture risk assessment
Nutritional guidance for bone health
