Screening

Bone density screening is now available for groups of 20+

Osteoporosis is a disease that strikes without warning. Once you have it, it’s yours for LIFE. It is a condition affecting 1 in every 3 women and 1 in every 10 men. Women characteristically suffer after the age of menopause, but men can begin to suffer from a much earlier age. It should be considered as a paediatric disease, with geriatric consequences. You may only be 25 now and not worried about being 60, but bear in mind that we live longer and 60 is not old! We take great care to save our money and invest in pension schemes....... as there is such a high risk of this disease affecting so many of us, a small outlay now would be a very smart investment.

An ultrasound scanner screens your bone density by passing ultrasound waves through the bone – it’s passage will be altered depending on the internal structure and density of the bone. This method of ultrasound scanning is quick, simple, safe, accurate and completely painless. All that is required of you is to remove your shoe and sock/stocking. The scan is completed in less than 5 minutes and your result is produced immediately. A confidential explanation is given by a trained technician and you receive your result and interpretation in a booklet along with lifestyle advice that will reduce your risk.

If you have below normal bone density, you may have many years to alter that status through diet, weight bearing exercise and lifestyle changes to lower your risk to ensure a long, pain free life.
