Osteoporosis Screening (Bone Density Test)

Osteoporosis Screening (Bone Density Test)

Why Should I get an Osteoporosis Screening?

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes fractures. You can have Osteoporosis for many years and not even know it. People generally don’t have any symptoms until a fracture occurs.

Osteoporosis is serious and causes over 2 million broken bones every year.

Testimonials**

"If I hadn't gone to Life Line Screening I never would have known that my arteries were blocked as much as they were. Doctors don't check this unless something is wrong. By the time I got two more opinions and then had to wait six months to go back to the last doctor I was 95 % blocked. They brought me soon after that. I could have had a stroke. This was the best decision I have ever made." –Noreen O.

"I had considerable blockage in my carotid arteries, and no symptoms. Thanks to Life Line Screening for sending me the postcard that probably saved my life." –Sheri Rowney
