Aquacare Physical Therapy, with offices in Lewes, Millville and Millsboro, is offering a specialized osteoporosis therapy program.

This program emphasizes a comprehensive treatment strategy for men and women who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia. After an initial evaluation by a physical therapist, patients will be seen for a series of visits addressing proper posture and body alignment, balance training, diet recommendations and specific exercise strategies to strengthen bones and muscles.

According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporotic fractures are more common among women than heart attack, stroke and breast cancer combined, yet because the condition has no warning signs, few women with the condition are diagnosed or treated. Independent self-management is the ultimate goal and is the key to a successful outcome. This program is covered by most insurances.

For more information on the specialized services offered for osteopenia or osteoporosis management or to schedule a consultation or free screening, call the Millville office at 302-539-3110, the Lewes office at 302-945-0200 or the Millsboro office at 302-945-4250.
