Today, 25 million Americans have the
bone-thinning disease called osteoporosis. Because of their weakened
bones, these Americans' bones are more susceptible to breaks, cracks
and fractures. The causes of osteoporosis can be numerous, such as a
lack of calcium, a family history of osteoporosis, small bone
structure, a history of smoking or drinking alcohol, and an inactive
lifestyle, as well as being over age 50.
Screenings are easy, completely
pain-free and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. There
will be a nominal fee of $5 per screening.
