Bone Density Screening Day

Bone Density Screening at Warwick Sport

Osteoporosis literally means ‘Porous Bones’. It occurs when the rate of bone renewal does not match the rate of breakdown, eventually resulting in weak, brittle bones. Osteoporosis has no symptoms unless you break or fracture a bone, and many individuals do not realise they have the condition until this happens. Too often, people are diagnosed with osteoporosis years after they have had the condition, if they are diagnosed at all: this is too late for them to have the most effective treatment.

The company Bone Matters will be visiting Warwick Sport on Tuesday 7 February offering bone density screenings.

The test offered is a heel quantitative ultrasound scan, which is not diagnostic but provides an indicator of bone density and fracture risk.

  • Tuesday 7th February in the Lecture Room above Westwood Games Hall
  • Bone Matters offer this test for £30
  • Payments can be made at the end of the appointment by either cash or cheque

After the test is completed, your results will be printed off and explained to you. There will also be time for you to ask questions, if you have any! Along with your results and explanation, you will receive an information pack with evidence-based nutrition, exercise and lifestyle advice to enable you to safeguard yourself against the condition, greatly enhancing your chances of having strong and healthy bones for life.

If you would like to book a test please email Tracey directly: tracey@bonematters.org

The appointment will take approximately 15 minutes and results and advice are given immediately.
