At Health Plus Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation, Edison, NJ our focus is on educating our patients on healthy lifestyle.

Osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both. As a result, bones become weak and may break from a fall or, in serious cases, from sneezing or minor bumps. It is estimated that approximately half of all women older than 50 years of age, and as many as one in four men, will suffer broken bones due to osteoporosis. 

NOF is celebrating National Osteoporosis Month in May and its 35th Anniversary with the launch of new resources designed to help people of all ages understand the importance of good bone health. NOF’s interactive digital tool, 35 Ways to Stay Bone Strong, provides resources and activities vetted by America’s authority on bone health to promote the facts about osteoporosis and prevent bone breaks.
