OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes the bones to weaken and makes them more likely to break. Osteoporosis itself is painless but the fractures it may cause are painful and may result in deformity, disability and even death. The causes of this thinning of bone are numerous, ranging from medication to malignant conditions of the bone marrow. A detailed history, physical exam, blood work and radiological procedures are often necessary to determine the cause of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is often treatable through adjustments in medication, diet and exercise. Identification of patients at risk for fractures is extremely important so that preventative measures can be initiated.

 

Parking Lot Construction at Concord Office!

We are growing – parking spaces that is! Beginning in early June, Concord Orthopaedics will begin a parking lot expansion project at our 264 Pleasant Street, Concord location. Your safety is our top concern. Please pay special attention when entering our parking lot to follow new directional signs and markings indicating a new traffic pattern. We have made every effort to maximize the available parking spaces during construction. The final result, slated for completion in the fall, will be improved access and 80 new parking spaces! Thank you for your patience and understanding as we embark on this important project to improve patient access and convenience.
