Workshop at Upper Weston Osteoporosis, arthritis, rheumatism and fibromyalgia

Osteoporosis literally means ‘Porous Bones’. It occurs when the rate of bone renewal does not match the rate of breakdown, eventually resulting in weak, brittle bones. Osteoporosis has no symptoms unless you break or fracture a bone, and many individuals do not realise they have the condition until this happens. Too often, people are diagnosed with osteoporosis years after they have had the condition, if they are diagnosed at all: this is too late for them to have the most effective treatment.

In the UK, one in two women and one in five men over the age of 50 fractures a bone. Most of these fractures occur because the individual has osteoporosis. In many cases, the sufferer has the condition as a result of a lifetime’s failure to take preventative action. In fact, osteoporosis has been called “a paediatric disease with geriatric consequences.”

More women die each year from fractures caused by osteoporosis than die from breast cancer. This is a frightening and unnecessary statistic for a condition that is frequently preventable and – if diagnosed – treatable.
