Bone health keeps it all together

02 March 2014, 19:15

There is a disturbing lack of appropriate knowledge about osteoporosis, and the importance of knowing your bone density. Our skeletons are the core structures that hold us together, and without strong bones, all that hard work at the gym and salon might crumble!

As we age, our bones become thinner. Like nails, bones are constantly growing and they grow with larger and larger gaps in the bone structure.* There are a wide variety of factors that contribute to this, some are beyond our control, but many are easy to include in a daily routine that will ensure we keep our bone density at an acceptable level and prevent osteoporosis.

 You may be a healthy cycling or long distance running enthusiast who focuses on their diet and exercise intently, but if your bone structure is weak, you are putting yourself at very serious risk of life altering injury and possibly death.

Whilst decreasing bone density affects men and women, women over 45 spend more days in hospital due to osteoporosis related injuries than ANY OTHER DISEASES.

Why take that chance when it can so easily be avoided with awareness and affordable testing?

Modern technology allows us to detect decreases in bone density before it becomes a problem, and ethical testing stations should simultaneously educate you on how to maintain your good bone health. 

Non-invasive, radiation free, multi-site, ultrasound testing provides affordable testing, at a clinic near you, with immediate results and a recovery/ maintenance plan.

(*There are a range of factors that also lead to thinning bones in newborns and children, and if you suspect this, it is essential to have a bone density test.)
