Osteoporosis is Treatable

Osteoporosis Clinic Ireland is a multidisciplinary clinic, providing a unique triple therapy approach, that has been developed to assist people with or predisposed to bone health issues. Osteoporosis is a silent disease affecting 1 in 2 women and 1 in 4 men over the age of 50 in Ireland, although all age groups can be affected.

5. Bone density scanning to determine osteoporosis risk index

6. Supplements explained based on each client's needs
