Osteoporosis is a degenerative bone condition that typically affects older adults. As the bones become weaker, osteoporosis pain may set in and limit your daily activities and quality of life. National Pain Institute offers osteoporosis treatments for residents of Orlando, as well as other communities in Central and South Florida.
What Is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a degenerative condition in which your bones start to break down. As the condition progresses, the bones become very brittle and vulnerable to fractures. People with osteoporosis also experience a significant amount of generalized pain, as well as pain within their bones.
What Are the Symptoms of Osteoporosis?
- Fractures that occur while performing normal daily activities.
- Back pain that is caused by a deteriorated vertebra.
- Poor posture or a hunched stature.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Osteoporosis?
The pain management procedures at National Pain Institute are not intended to cure osteoporosis nor reverse the damage to the bones. Rather, our interventions aim to alleviate you of osteoporosis pain that may further disrupt your daily routine or prevent you from engaging in the primary course of treatment for the condition.
How Is Osteoporosis Treated?
- Vitamin D testing and therapy
- Steroid injections to reduce any inflammation around the nerves
What Should I Expect After Treatment for Osteoporosis?
Most of our treatments for osteoporosis pain do not require downtime or recovery. The more conservative treatments may provide pain relief for several months.
Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty are minimally invasive spine surgeries that we use to strengthen the bones with a special type of cement. General anesthesia is not required, so these procedures are safe for most patients. You will have some degree of downtime with these surgeries, and we can provide more details during your consultation.
Osteoporosis causes damage to your bones that may produce significant levels of pain. If prescription medications are not providing the relief you need, you may be a good candidate for interventional osteoporosis pain management treatments. At National Pain Institute, our team of pain management physicians offers osteoporosis treatments for residents of Orlando, as well as other communities in Central and South Florida.
