Specialized Bone Health Clinic Has Seen a 50% Increase in Osteoporosis Evaluations in the Past Year
DENVER – Oct 23, 2019 – Advanced Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Specialists marked its first anniversary of service to the Colorado community for its specialized Bone Health Clinic this month. Osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually – that’s one every three seconds. The specialized clinic provides osteoporosis management programs, tailored to each individual patient, and is home to three certified specialists who are committed to help the region change these trends:
“As one of the top orthopedic practices in the Rockies, we are committed to bone health and the management of osteoporosis,” said Dr. Motz. “Osteoporosis – and the fractures that come from it – are preventable and treatable. Colorado’s active population need not be impacted at the alarming national osteoporosis rate, but, because there typically are no symptoms in the early stages, it’s important to be evaluated.”
As people age, they lose bone density and bones become weaker. The National Osteoporosis Foundation estimates that half of women over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis. And data shows that after experiencing a fracture due to osteoporosis, people are 86% more likely to have another fracture in the next year.
As Coloradans continue to be more active in their senior years, they need modern resources to support their healthy, active lifestyles. The bone health specialists at Advanced Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Specialists provide bone health evaluations and a variety of treatment options that help patients live full and active lives without the interruption of fractures or osteoporosis.
