Bone Health Means Better Health

Osteoporosis is the most common bone disorder and a major health care issue.

Eight million women and two million men in the U.S. are diagnosed with osteoporosis each year. One in two women and one in four men over the age of 50 will experience an osteoporotic fracture. In many cases, the prognosis is very poor once a person experiences a fracture.

Osteoporosis robs the body of bone mineral density, saps strength and increases the risk of fracture. It offers no warning signs at the beginning. In fact, most people don’t even realize they have it. Bone fracture, pain, deformity and disability may not appear until osteoporosis becomes more advanced, and much more difficult to treat. That’s why osteoporosis is often called a silent killer.


However, the good news is that osteoporosis is, in fact, preventable. The Methodist Hospitals Osteoporosis Clinic is dedicated to preventing osteoporosis through early detection, as well as effectively treating osteoporosis using the most advanced treatments available.
