OSTEOPOROSIS FACTS

  • 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.

  • If you cannot download the questionnaire, please call Reception on 01985 213927 or email info@warminsterclinic.co.uk and we will put one in the post for you.
