Living With Osteoporosis:
How to Prevent Slips & Falls
Wednesday, November 2, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
2040 Walden Ave.
As we age, osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses such as bending over or coughing can cause a fracture.
Several factors can increase the likelihood that you’ll develop osteoporosis — including age, race, family history, lifestyle choices, and medical conditions and treatments. Osteoporosis affects men and women of all races. But white and Asian women — especially older women who are past menopause — are at highest risk.
Join Scott Zuccala, DO, Ken Lukasiewicz, DPT, and Joe Baumgarden, PT to learn more about how osteoporosis is diagnosed, what you can do prevent or lessen your risk, treatment options, the benefits of exercise, and other tips to help you manage this disease at home.
The event is FREE. A complimentary light dinner will be served.
