Osteoporosis causes weak bones, pain and fractures.
Osteoporosis affects an estimated 3 million people in the UK.
1 in 3 women and 1 in 12 men over 50 will suffer from this debilitating and painful condition.
Up to 25% of bone mass can be lost following six months of inactivity.
THE GOOD NEWS IS ...
Osteoporosis is treatable at any age. It’s never too late to start.
Bone mass can be increased by a healthy diet, supplements and regular exercise.
We offer a personalised portable screening service to identify those at risk of developing osteoporosis, and advice for those already suffering.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
We can assess your risk of osteoporosis, using an ultrasound scan of your heel and a detailed lifestyle questionnaire.
We normally scan your left heel. Let us know if this is difficult for you.
Use the buttons below to learn more detail about osteoporosis, to book your appointment with us, and to download the questionnaire.
The questionnaire is detailed and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Please bring the completed questionnaire to your appointment.
