Bone density tests at Sugden Sports Centre

19 Jan 2016

The Sugden Sports Centre will be hosting a day of bone density screening on Tuesday, 8 March for only £30

Tracey will assess your bone density and fracture risk using a machine called a ‘Quantative Ultrasound Scanner’ or ‘QUS’. The test measures the bone density in your heel and is very useful for assessing your risk of fracturing (breaking) your legs, arms, hips and wrists – common fracture sites for sufferers of osteoporosis. The machine is safe, painless, and has no side effects. 

After the test, your results will be printed off and explained to you. There will also be time for you to ask questions, if you have any. Along with your results and explanation, you will receive an information pack with evidence-based nutrition, exercise and lifestyle advice to enable you to safeguard yourself against the condition, greatly enhancing your chances of having strong and healthy bones.

The appointment will take approximately 15 minutes and payments can be made at the end by cash or cheque.
