Osteoporosis Prevention And Treatment Services

Maximize your bone health.

Be Your Strongest Self

Osteoporosis is a silent disease with no symptoms, yet it can have a huge impact on your health. Patients often find out they have osteoporosis only after they break a bone. Early screening and detection gives you your best chance at halting bone loss and maximizing your bone health.

ChristianaCare’s Strong Bones Program can assess and treat your bone health and reduce your risk of breaking a bone. There is no cure for osteoporosis, but the Strong Bones Program can help you be your strongest self.

Osteoporosis is a condition in which bone density and quality are reduced, resulting in bone fragility. Osteoporosis is a silent disease, because there are no symptoms until a bone breaks.
Your bone density depends on a variety of genetic, lifestyle and medical factors. Some factors, such as diet and exercise, can be controlled; others must be managed.
The Strong Bones program helps you and your bone health by assessing your risk through a bone density scan, improving follow-up care, and partnering with your primary care doctor by providing focused care with an effective treatment plan.
This free assessment provides you with personalized, strictly confidential information for your best defense against bone disorders and osteoporosis.

Working together, the team shapes and continually refines a plan of care suited to each person’s needs.
