Should Victorville Women Be Concerned?
Osteoporosis hinders mobility and often causes depression. People with the disease sometimes feel isolated and sad which leads to other health problems. This is especially true for older people who require long-term care because of a broken bone or hip. Changes in nutrition and physical activity often help prevent osteoporosis from setting in. Dr. Wilburn will discuss these things with you when she meets with you after your visit to her office.
