Have you suffered a broken bone in your hip or spine? Do you feel as if you are getting shorter? If you answer Ã¢â‚¬Å“yesÃ¢â‚¬Â to either of these questions, you may want to consider being screened for the risk of osteoporosis.
We are pleased to offer a Life Line Screening Radiology preventive health event that can be used to detect just such a risk. Life Line Screening Radiology uses a quantitative ultrasound bone densitometer, using the heel as a measurement site, to assess oneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s risk of osteoporosis.
This screening compares your bone density to that of the average 20-year-old adult female, according to World Health Organization guidelines. The osteoporosis screening is not only for women.
Of the 10 million Americans who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, 2 million are men.
The screening will take place on September 10th at the Fulton Family YMCA located at 715 West Broadway, Fulton, New York, from 9:00am until 5:00pm. Register today for a Wellness Package with Heart Rhythm for $149.
All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. Your Health is in Your Hands, so call 1-888-653-6441, or visit www.lifelinescreening.com, for more information or to pre-register.
