Do you believe in quality of life?
How do you see your future?
Osteoporosis - the “Silent Thief” is usually without symptoms.

 Low bone density can result in painful fractures of the spine, hip and wrist. Broken bones may cause pain, deformity and sometimes even death.

We are looking for women between the ages of 65 and 85, who are not currently taking any medication that may affect bone density.

Qualifying applicants will receive free bone density testing at our clinic. The most accurate way to test your bone density is by having a DEXA (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry). This is a quick and painless procedure using a small amount of x-ray to evaluate your current bone health status.

If you think you might be interested, please telephone our clinic so that we can help answer your questions.

Call 760-341-6800 for more information.
