OSTEOPOROSIS

Finding Relief for Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is often called a "silent disease" because it is not detected until a fracture has already occurred. Osteoporosis is defined by weak and brittle bones. Patients with osteoporosis are at far greater risk for fractures with minimal trauma, such as a fall from ground level.

Osteoporosis Treatments

We begin a treatment plan for osteoporosis with a bone density test. We can start with a more conservative approach using calcium and vitamin D versus a more extensive treatment with bisphosphonates, an oral bone density medication, or with injectable medication such as Priola, Forteo or Evenity.  Our fracture liasion will create a customized treatment plan for you based on your test results and individual needs.

Among the most common fracture  that occurs due to osteoporosis is a compression fracture.  At Citrus Spine Institute, we treat compression fractures with bracing or a kyphoplasty procedure, and we also help prevent future compression fractures by treating the osteoporosis that causes them.
