Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by a decrease in the density of bone, decreasing its strength and resulting in fragile bones. Osteoporosis literally leads to abnormally porous bone that is compressible, like a sponge.
This disorder of the skeleton weakens the bone and results in frequent fractures (breaks) in the bones. Normal bone is composed of protein, collagen, and calcium, all of which give bone its strength. Bones that are affected by osteoporosis can break (fracture) with relatively minor injury that normally would not cause a bone to fracture.
The fracture can be either in the form of cracking (as in a hip fracture) or collapsing (as in a compression fracture of the vertebrae of the spine). The spine, hips, ribs, and wrists are common areas of bone fractures from osteoporosis although osteoporosis-related fractures can occur in almost any skeletal bone.
Non Surgical Treatment For Joint Conditions
AMERICAN SPINE CENTER’s 360 protocol is unique and supported by evidence based medicine. It has been formulated in our primary branch in the USA and implemented in other branches and has been updated since 1991.
We have successfully treated more than 50,000 patients with this protocol at our branches in U.S.A and GCC.
At American Spine Center we not only focus on treating the symptoms of the disease but also on the underlying root cause.
Our aim is to treat the patient as a whole with successful results.
AMERICAN SPINE CENTER’s 360 protocol is based on 4 key principles
- 1. Consultation & Education : The first step towards a successful treatment is consultation and education. This includes a detailed history and physical examination and review of previous records with the patient. At this stage our specialists will recommend the appropriate medication regimen.
- 2. Physical Therapy : Physical therapy is one of the keys to managing joint pain. Our physical therapists actively engage the patient in rehabilitation and exercises. Physical therapy helps place patients on the right track by exercising weak points and regaining strength that may have been lost.
- 3. Non-Surgical Pain Procedures: These procedures are an integrated part of our successful protocol of non-surgical treatment, and it ensures success rates. A series of therapeutic injections are administered to very specific areas of the spine to alleviate pain that would otherwise interfere with daily life. Our Pain Physicians are skilled in using this advanced method of Pain Management with care and safety. We use C-ARM and ultrasound guide for precise placement of the needle for increased effectiveness and to avoid any potential side effect.
- 4. Nutrition & Wellness: We believe that the patient’s active participation with treatment protocol produces long-lasting results. We review all conditions as well as risk factors. We address many issues; such as smoking cessation, overweight problems, ergonomic posture, and exercises that can fit into any lifestyle or schedule. We feel that implementing these changes will improve the chances of long-lasting results so the patient can enjoy a normal active life.
