Get help to improve bone density and treat osteoporosis and osteopenia
As we age, our bones can lose density through a condition called osteopenia. That makes our bones more susceptible to fractures and breaks. More advanced bone loss is known as osteoporosis. Osteopenia and osteoporosis affect as many as one in five adults and can result in painful injuries and loss of mobility.
You can see specialists who are devoted solely to caring for patients who have osteopenia and osteoporosis when you visit Novant Health Osteoporosis Clinic – Clemmons. The clinic is a department of Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center and brings a unique set of services to the region. Our medical team can evaluate your bone density and then develop a plan to help you reduce or prevent future bone loss and, if possible, regain bone mass. We also can coordinate care with physical therapists, when needed, to help improve mobility and stability and prevent future injury.
