Stay Healthy to the Bone

You can do a lot to reduce your risk of developing osteoporosis, the bone disease that leads to fractures.  Protect your bones by getting enough calcium and vitamin D, avoiding excess alcohol, quitting smoking and exercising regularly.  Weight training is especially valuable, as are weight-bearing exercises such as walking and stair climbing.

We put your family’s health and well being first.
