Osteoporosis Awareness Month

May is Osteoporosis Awareness Month-----I'm not exactly sure how you should celebrate it, perhaps take your bones out to lunch, maybe treat them to some ice cream (yeah, I vote for that one!!!!). You can learn more about the National Osteoporosis Foundation by clicking here, and check out this article from Sign On San Diego---outlines some of the risk factors for the disease. If you have any of the risk factors, or you are over 50, be sure to get with your health care practitioner to discuss a bone density scan. It's easy, and it's painless.
