Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and break easily. Older women are more likely to experience osteoporosis, but early prevention is important. Women's Care offers bone density screenings to detect osteoporosis.
At Women’s Care, we screen for osteoporosis using in-office bone density screenings. This is the only test that can diagnose osteoporosis before symptoms develop, and it is performed by our team of expert clinicians. 80% of those affected by osteoporosis are women, making it a common women’s health concern (especially after menopause). While osteoporosis is not curable, it is treatable, and there are many steps you can take to manage the disease and reduce your chance of breaking a bone. At our offices throughout Florida, we utilize bone density tests to screen for osteoporosis and help women maintain positive bone health.
