Join NSPC’s Spine Health Workshop this May

May is Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month.

Some Things you Need to Know About Osteoporosis

  • Half of all adults 50 years of age and older have osteoporosis.
  • Osteoporosis is a condition that slows down the production of new bone tissue, causing the bone to become brittle.
  • In the US, Osteoporosis causes nearly 2 million fractures each year, with more than 700,000 of these fractures occurring in the spine.

The Spine Health Workshop - a Great Way to Learn About Osteoporosis

This May, National Spine & Pain Centers (NSPC) offers a free Spine Health Workshop, in collaboration with American Bone Health and Medtronic.

This interactive, online workshop includes videos, homework, and surveys that teach you how to protect your spine from painful compression fractures.

Take advantage of the combined experience of several well-respected health professionals from different medical fields.

As part of the Spine Health Workshop, Dr. Daniel R. Kendall, Medical Director at National Spine and Pain Centers, will discuss non-surgical treatments that relieve pain after a spinal compression fracture.

Dr. Kendall will be joined by an orthopedic surgeon who explains the role of surgery and a physical therapist who teaches exercises to protect the spine.

Other topics covered in the workshop include:

  • The anatomy of your spine
  • Back pain due to spine fractures
  • Assessing the risk of breaking a bone in your spine
  • Nutrition for strong bones
  • Good posture and body mechanics
  • Exercises that prevent spine injuries
