Osteoporosis Program

More Than Medication

Boone Hospital Center offers a comprehensive approach to the treatment of osteoporosis from diagnostic imaging to exercise and nutrition management.

Bone Density Therapy

Boone Hospital Center physical therapists have been trained in selecting specific cardiovascular and postural exercises along with weightlifting to maintain bone density. Exercises are customized to each patient and adjusted as progress is made.

The Boone Therapy Osteoporosis Program falls under the physical therapy benefit on insurance plans, typically allowing patients 10 one-on-one sessions. Patients are then given a one-month membership to the Boone Hospital Center Community and Medical Fitness Center for continued training under close supervision.

Convenience and Comfort

The Boone Therapy Osteoporosis Program is located on the ground level of the Boone Hospital Nifong Medical Plaza in south Columbia. Diagnostic imaging and treatment are available in a private, comfortable environment using the latest technology and equipment.
