Osteoporosis – our treatment
Osteoporosis, also known as bone atrophy in non-medical terms, is a common disease, especially in older age. The causes of a disproportionate loss of bone mass are very diverse. Appropriate diagnostics and therapy are important in order to avoid possible secondary conditions such as bone fractures. The progression of bone mass loss can be counteracted, for example, with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, exercise and special weight training, as well as special drugs. However, if osteoporosis is present, the risk of fractures, especially in the area of your back, along with the corresponding pain, clearly increases over time. The back specialists in our Spine Centre at Schoen Clinic Neustadt, which is certified as a centre of excellence, will treat you at the highest medical level in the event of an osteoporotic fracture of the spine. Depending on the type of fracture and your limitations, conservative therapies can help you, sometimes surgery is also the therapy of choice.
