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.

6. Supplements explained based on each client's needs
