Osteopenia Diagnosis & Treatments in Toronto

What is Osteopenia?

Osteopenia & OsteoporosisOsteopenia is a condition when your bones become weak but not weak enough to be diagnosed with osteoporosis. Osteopenia can turn into osteoporosis if the bones keep losing calcium and getting thin over time.

The decrease in bone density can lead to increased risk of fractures and breaking bones. There are multiple causes of Osteopenia, the common risk factors and causes include:

  • Hormonal causes
  • Genetics
  • Smoking
  • Thin and small frame
  • Excess alcohol
  • Medications such as antiseizure, prednisone and corticosteroids
  • Bone loss after chemotherapy and radiotherapy
  • Immobility
  • Chronic inflammation

There is usually no pain related to Osteopenia, hence it is not diagnosed unless there is a fracture or crack in a bone. The vertebral and hip fracture caused due to Osteopenia can be very painful. Working closely with a physiotherapist can help in improving posture and strengthening muscles through weight-bearing exercises. The exercises that help the condition include lifting weights, dancing, stair climbing and walking.
