Osteoporosis Therapy Program

Osteoporosis is an age-related disease characterized by abnormally low bone mineral density.

According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, it has been estimated that in the USA, 54% of postmenopausal white women are osteopenic and 30% are osteoporotic, and by the age of 80, 27% of women are osteopenic and 70% are osteoporotic. They estimate that 1 in 3 women over 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures, as will 1 in 5 men.

Our osteoporosis physical therapy program concentrates on nutrition and exercise that helps increase bone mass, strengthen muscle, and increase flexibility. Catered specifically to your needs, your physical therapy program may also include balance training.

If you are an osteoporosis patient who has suffered a bone fracture, you may participate in occupational therapy during the recovery process. A certified therapist may also work with you to help evaluate any risks at home.

Give us a call at (302) 478-5240 or (302) 655-5877 to speak with us about our osteoporosis therapy program. We'll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have or schedule an appointment with one of our physical therapists.
