Osteoporosis Screening

Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses such as bending over or coughing can cause a fracture.

We offer osteoporosis screening for individuals over 50 years old who have broken a bone from a simple fall. The Fracture Clinic Screening Program offered at our Oshawa and Ajax locations is designed to help individuals who may have needlessly fractured a bone because their osteoporosis has gone undetected and untreated. The program was developed in partnership with Osteoporosis Canada as part of the Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy.
