Osteoporosis, bone health and back pain
Tuesday 16th October 2018, 6-7pm.
World Osteoporosis Day is coming up on Saturday 20th October and to celebrate we are running a free community health workshop. Our physios are presenting on osteoporosis, bone health, and back pain, and what you can do for prevention and management.
Worldwide, one in three women and one in five men aged 50 years and over will suffer an osteoporotic fracture. Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and fragile, so that they break easily – even as a result of a minor fall, a bump, a sneeze, or a sudden movement. Fractures caused by osteoporosis can be life-threatening and a major cause of pain and long-term disability.
Can osteoporosis and fractures be prevented? Yes, if action is taken early! Come along to our workshop to learn more.
When: 6 – 7pm, Tuesday 16th October 2018
Where: UprightCare clinic, Suite 8, level 1, 97 Grafton Street, Bondi Junction (in the Meriton Suites).
