AMRI Hospitals, Mukundapur is all set to organize Free Ortho Consultation and BMD Test for a whole week starting from August 1st, 2019. In order to avail the services, patients need to book a prior appointment. The initiative has been put forth on the occasion of National Bone and Joint Day which is celebrated on August 4 every year.
Medical studies show that Osteoporosis is a common condition in elderly people caused by lack of load-bearing exercise, aging, and estrogen deficiency. Bones become thin due to a shortage of organic scaffolding that holds calcium. More than 2 million cases of debilitating arthritis or lower back pain are added every year.
As we age, our bones and joints undergo physiological changes that affect movement. To keep our joints in their best health, daily physical activity along with weight management via a healthy balanced diet including proper intake of protein, vitamin D and C, and calcium is of utmost importance.
According to health experts at AMRI Hospitals, “The main reasons for weak bones are unhealthy lifestyle, less physical activity, excess alcohol, smoking, lack of adequate calcium intake and diseases like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, hypothyroidism and epilepsy.”They stress the need to take an adequate amount of calcium in the diet, checking vitamin D levels, physical activities in daily routine and keeping away from smoking and alcohol.
The campaign organized by AMRI Hospitals will include informative sessions on natural ways to maintain healthy bones and joints. Regular physical exercise and aerobics increase our heart rate and reduce joint swelling. Other effective ways to keep joints healthy include taking frequent breaks at work, stretching and going for a short walk.
Talking about the healthcare awareness program, a spokesperson of AMRI Hospitals said, “Such campaigns are the best platforms to raise awareness about different medical conditions. We will be happy if this campaign benefits people who are suffering from poor bone and joint health.”
