LifeHealth has upgraded our popular bone density screenings using our new state of the art screening equipment. Results are immediate. Each employee is counseled on what the results mean and lifestyle changes that support bone health. Bone density screenings are popular inclusions in corporate health fairs and employees consistently give high marks on their experiences.
According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 10 million people have osteoporosis and an additional 44 million more have low bone density. While osteoporosis and osteopenia usually affect women, particularly after age 55, men can develop it as well. Low bone density increases the risk of bone fractures and is preventable with good diet, exercise and an active lifestyle. Since there are no symptoms of osteoporosis or osteopenia, it is usually discovered through routine screening or after a fracture.
Contact our Worksite Wellness Department to schedule a bone density screening at your worksite and help your employees learn how to improve their health.
