As we age, our bodies naturally undergo changes, and with these changes come unique orthopedic challenges. At Osceola Medical Center (OMC) and Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO), we're committed to addressing these concerns, ensuring our seniors age gracefully and actively.
The Golden Years: A Time of Change
Aging brings about a myriad of musculoskeletal changes. From the natural wear and tear of joints leading to conditions like osteoarthritis to the decreased bone density of osteoporosis, seniors face a range of orthopedic concerns.
Common Orthopedic Concerns in Seniors
Osteoarthritis: Often manifesting as joint pain and stiffness, osteoarthritis is a common ailment among seniors. With TCO's expertise at OMC, personalized treatment plans ensure pain management and improved mobility.
Osteoporosis: Characterized by fragile bones, osteoporosis increases the risk of fractures. Regular screenings and preventive measures at OMC help in early detection and management.
Balance Issues: As we age, balance can become a challenge, increasing the risk of falls. Physical therapy and balance training play a pivotal role in prevention.
