IBJI’s Clinical Approach to Living Better with Bone Loss
As patients age, they face increased risk of osteoporosis, a condition that causes bones to become weak and brittle. Because osteoporosis makes bones more fragile, patients with this condition are more susceptible to injuries. Having osteoporosis can lead to painful fractures, sometimes caused by simple actions like bending or twisting. For many people, it isn’t until a fracture occurs that osteoporosis is diagnosed.
Unfortunately, patients who have had a fracture due to osteoporosis face increased risk of suffering another fracture. Which is one of the reasons that IBJI is so committed to working closely with patients to educate them about the importance of diagnosing and treating osteoporosis as soon as possible.
