Avoid Osteoporosis, Get Screened!

One of the interesting facts about Osteoporosis is that symptoms do not appear early in the disease. The patient is not able to detect the disease until the severe symptoms, such as bone pain and tenderness, height loss and stooped posture, occur. This is why it is so important that women get screened routinely.  The great thing about Osteoporosis is that there are many treatments and supplements to reverse its effects.   That is why Art of Care, Inc. urges you to get screened today!

Task force urges bone-density tests for more women

Routine screening for osteoporosis should include all younger postmenopausal women who have at least the same chance of a bone break as an older woman, a government task force said Monday.

Also, for the first time, the group weighed whether men should be checked for the bone-thinning disease, but it decided there wasn't enough evidence to recommend for or against the screening.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force's draft guidelines widen its 2002 advice, when it first said that all women over 65, plus those 60 to 64 at higher risk for fractures, should get a bone density test.
