While osteoporosis, bone disease, and risk of fracture are more common in women, all adults should take steps to strengthen their bones. Our skilled CRNP will work one-on-one with you to improve the strength of your bones.
The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics Orthopaedic Associates of Central Maryland is now offering a “Bone Health” initiative program as part of our services.
We're not only here to fix bones; we're here to protect them. Bones can become weak and break due to various lifestyle factors. This weakening is called osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is often called a "silent disease", because it lacks any obvious symptoms. Many people do not realize they have it until they suffer a bone break, but it doesn't have to be this way. There are many preventive measures available.
Please take this short assessment to see if you might be at risk of osteoporosis.
Even if you are at high risk, it is never too late to improve your bone health. There is much that can be done to do so. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with our Bone Health Specialist, Angeline Williams, CRNP to get a bone density test and a plan to strengthen your bones. You can call in or use our Klara messaging service to do so.
Let's make stronger bones together!
