At The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth we provide a physiotherapy led service for the management of osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures.
We can accurately assess the risk of osteoporotic fracture and identify whether there is a potential need for bone scanning and drug management.
Consisting of a carefully graduated exercise programme of strengthening and balance exercises, physiotherapy can effectively improve pain, function and quality of life. This can be beneficial for individuals to slow down the progression of osteoporotic bone loss, reduce the risk of fractures and falling and to help rehabilitate after a osteoporotic fracture.
Providing guidance and education will enable the individual to understand their long term condition more fully and lead to increased confidence in everyday life.
Central Health Physiotherapy works closely with medical experts in osteoporosis and will refer on to them for further management if necessary.
We also have links with dieticians if dietary advice is needed.
Who would benefit?
- Those at risk of developing osteoporosis
- Those who have osteoporosis whether you have or have not yet suffered a fracture.
Our Osteoporosis Clinic is available at St John’s Wood, London.
