Bones anchor our muscles, protect our organs, and provide overall structure to our body. These functions of bone become increasingly important as we age, yet our bones tend to become increasingly weak and fragile with age. Significant losses to bone mass, called osteoporosis, affects over 200 million people worldwide and is especially prevalent for individuals over 50 years old. Bone density scans are important to assessing risk or presence of osteoporosis for individuals, however bone density scans give off radiation, which can produce harmful effects with time and repetition.
Fortunately, here at Med Center Therapy, we use FDA-approved bone density scanning device by BeamMed called Sunlight Omnitech 8000 to provide early assessment and monitoring of osteoporosis. This non-invasive, radiation-free device provides precise reports of bone density in a matter of minutes for patients of all ages. With the Omnitech 8000, our licensed therapists can safely and accurately manage and monitor osteoporosis diagnoses and treatments plans.
The video below displays how the Omnitech 8000 is used with our patients:
