Osteoporosis Treatment in Winchester, VA
What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis weakens bones, making them extremely brittle and fragile. This can easily cause fractures, loss of height, and many other issues. Those with osteoporosis may not even realize it until they experience their first fracture. The most at-risk areas are the wrist, hip, and spine; however, even a small action like bending or walking can easily fracture other bones. If you have osteoporosis in Winchester, VA, or the surrounding areas, call Body Elite Physical Therapy at (540) 535-7222. We offer various therapy treatments to strengthen bones and increase your quality of life.

Get enough calcium and Vitamin D
Eat a well-balanced diet
Avoid heavy smoking & drinking
