Osteoporosis or osteopenia as its called in the very early stages, is a condition marked by progressive loss of bone strength and density, making the bone increasingly likely to fracture. Here at the Exmouth Chiropractic Clinic we are very vigilant for signs of Osteoporosis and if we suspect a patient may have the condition we will refer the patient for a DEXA bone density scan immediately.
