Reduce osteoporosis risks and maximize quality of life with leading-edge infusion therapy.
Osteoporosis is a medical condition in which the bones lose mass and, as a result, become weak and brittle. Quite literally, “osteoporosis” means “porous bone.” Normally, the body continuously absorbs and replaces bone tissue.
With osteoporosis, the production of new bone tissue is outpaced by the loss of older bone tissue, leaving increasingly porous bone structure that is prone to fracture. And fractures are what make osteoporosis the significant health concern that it is.
At Astera Infusion Therapy, we help your doctor reduce your risks for osteoporosis and your chances for experiencing a life-altering—and even life-threatening—osteoporotic fracture. We do this by offering the complete range of infusion and injection therapy drugs that your doctor may prescribe, including:
Protect yourself from osteoporosis, fractures and their associated risks.
Globally, a huge number of adults are at risk for osteoporotic fracture. Over age 50, this type of fracture is a risk for one in three women and one in five men. Another way to see this risk: it is estimated that an osteoporotic fracture occurs every 3 seconds.
In osteoporosis, fractures are worse than for people with healthy bone mass. For starters, bone tissue replacement is essential to healing, but it is compromised for people with osteoporosis. At the same time, the location and severity of osteoporotic fractures can also add to the seriousness of potential consequences.
Of particular concern are hip and vertebral fractures. In the spine, vertebral fractures can lead to loss of height, severe back pain, and deformity. Osteoporotic fractures of the hip can considerably erode a person’s mobility and independence, and they’re associated with an increase in mortality.
