Do I have Osteoporosis?

Do I have Osteoporisis?

Most people want to know the answer to this very question, and no doubt that’s why you’re reading this article right now!  To find out for sure, your doctor may recommend a medical test called a Bone Mineral Density test to measure how strong your bones are.

This is often referred to as a DEXA (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan.  The DEXA scan is currently the most accurate and recommended form of bone density measurement, with both the spine and hip measured.  The procedure only takes about 20 minutes, is safe and completely painless.

Your doctor may also suggest a digital spinal X-ray to diagnose any spinal fractures.
