Bone Health

Personalized treatment for bone health

Our approach at Lakewood Regional Medical Center offers compassion and care to women seeking a diagnosis and treatment for their bone condition. Millions of women are at risk of developing diseases affecting their bones like osteoporosis, a weakening of the bones, and may not know they have it until they fracture a bone. If you have osteoporosis, early detection and a personalized treatment plan are essential to maintaining your bone health.

Risk factors for bone conditions such as osteoporosis include:

  • Women past menopause or who went through menopause before age 45
  • White or Asian women
  • Women with a small or thin frame
  • Family history of osteoporosis
  • History of heavy smoking or drinking
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Diet with low calcium
  • History of non-traumatic fractures as an adult

Detecting osteoporosis with a bone density test

If you think you might be at risk, a bone density test is a painless and simple procedure to assess your bone health. If you have osteoporosis, Lakewood’s team of specially trained healthcare providers will give you a treatment plan personalized for you as well as valuable information on prevention. At Lakewood, our goal is to help you maintain a high quality of life.
