Bone and Joint Health Week

October 12- 20 of every year is declared Bone and Joint Health Week. Being aware of bone health is extremely important. Preventing arthritis, osteoporosis, and back pain, can be done with simply getting a DEXA scan done. People over the age of 65 are more prone to present bone density loss, and one of the main causes of this can be the act of falling. Older men and women present the highest percentage in fatal falls globally. Getting regular scans with bone density equipment such as DEXA scans can help detect any loss of bone density or structure.

For all of the people who invest time and effort in their physique, recognizing differences between weight gain, muscle gain and weight loss or muscle loss can be very important. In recent times, many health facilities such as spa’s, clinics and hospitals use DEXA scans to measure and analyze body composition. Bone densitometers provide a complete picture of the composition of the body and can detect how body mass is distributed between fat, lean muscle tissue and bones.

Regular exercise and a healthy diet can lead to a stronger musculoskeletal system, and doctors regularly recommend taking Yoga to strengthen the joints and bones. DEXA scans are now being used to monitor bones during infection or fracture. And can also be helpful in treating illnesses like Lupus and Turner Syndrome in pediatric patients because of the short scan times.

Those affected by these conditions deeply rely on medical imaging equipment like Bone Densitometers to track and diagnose these illnesses through time.
