What is Bone Disease
Bone disease is a condition that causes gradual harm to our bodies’ skeleton, making our bones feeble and more susceptible to fractures. Weak bones are not a natural part of aging. While solid bones start in adolescence, individuals of any age can maintain good bone health. Frail bones are not a characteristic piece of maturing.
Types of Bone Diseases
- Paget’s disease
- Osteogenesis Imperfecta
- Bone Cancers
- Fibrous Dysplasia
What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a common disease that reduces bone density, making them more prone to breakage. Human bones are living tissue that is in a constant state of renewal — old cells are discarded and replaced, a process known as remodeling. When a person has osteoporosis, the creation of new bone doesn’t keep up with the removal of old bone. As this happens, the bones become less dense and are prone to breaking. As many as 10 million Americans have osteoporosis.
Seamless service experience — As a new patient, documentation, pre-tests, visit, blood work and payment were handled efficiently with patient and understanding professionals. I was there for 90 minutes running through a thorough examination and everything was explained to me prior, the immediate results and options were discussed comprehensively, and follow up on test results and appointments were communicated. Great bedside manner, and extremely knowledgeable in options and diagnoses. – Rishika A.
