As a comprehensive orthopedic facility, we often treat patients with bone fractures caused by injuries, accidents, or simply as a result of wear and tear. While we will always be here to address these important needs, we also offer preventative, proactive support through our Bone Health Clinic. Your overall health is a priority, and we’re with you every step of the way!
Carle McLean County Orthopedics’ Bone Health Clinic offers preventative screenings and treatment options for osteoporosis and overall bone health. We offer innovative insight into the integrity of one’s entire skeletal system as well as osteoporosis prevention education or treatment options. New technology coupled with experienced analysis offers you tremendous insight into injury prevention and improved quality of life.
The first visit to the Bone Health Clinic consists of a health history and status questionnaire. If certain criteria are met you may then be scheduled for a scan through our state-of-the-art DEXA Scanner.
It’s safe, quick, and non-invasive nature makes it the ideal technology for today’s needs. DEXA, or Bone Densitometry, is the most accurate method for evaluating comprehensive bone health and diagnosing osteoporosis. After a completed scan, customized reports are obtained and analyzed by our trained medical team. Comprehensive data is then compiled and used to formulate complete, preventative and treatment options.
Overall bone health, osteoporosis screening, and evaluation is an important step in overall health. Call to schedule an appointment at the Carle McLean County Orthopedics Bone Health Clinic today!
