Rheumatologists treat arthritis, certain autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal pain disorders and osteoporosis. There are more than 100 of these diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, lupus, back pain, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia and tendonitis. Arthritis is characterized by joint pain and inflammation. Osteoarthritis is the most common arthritis. Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to lose density increasing the risk of fracture. Rheumatoid arthritis is less common but more inflammatory and potentially a more serious kind of arthritis.
Bone Density Measurement
Having a Bone Density Measurement can help diagnose and manage osteoporosis and assess future risk of fractures. Osteoporosis is a disease that affects both women and men and causes bones to lose mass and become brittle. It is a disease that is both preventable and treatable. A bone density screening takes from five to twenty minutes and is non-invasive, safe and painless. In most cases, radiation exposures are less than a chest x-ray. Testing does not require an injection. You arrive wearing comfortable clothing and a certified technician administers the test at our convenient Tillotson location. Our procedure is extremely accurate which is invaluable for follow-up comparison measurements. For most indications, it is recommended that you get bone density testing every two years.
