What Is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a bone disease that takes place when the body makes too little bone or loses too much bone. This causes the bones to become weak and susceptible to easy breaks and fractures. The condition is fairly common, more so in women than in men, and can be serious. If you are in a high-risk category for this weakened bone condition or exhibit common symptoms, contact Clinical Research of South Nevada for a comprehensive evaluation.
Our primary care team can assist you in managing the condition from the early stages of osteoporosis to the advanced stages of this bone disorder. We can do this through oral and injectable medications, pain-relieving therapies, and other nonsurgical interventions. Our practitioner, Dr. Roger Estevez, may suggest dietary supplements in addition to other medications to slow the progression of your symptoms. Together with you, we can create a personalized treatment plan that complements your medical history and adjusts to your lifestyle.
How Is Osteoporosis Diagnosed and Treated?
In most cases, an x-ray can help diagnose osteoporosis or a bone disorder. Osteoporosis treatments may include joint injections or other medications, hormone therapy, weight-bearing exercises, vitamin and mineral supplements, and additional bone-building therapies. Many of these remedies can be beneficial in a number of ways, including:
- Reduce and control inflammation
- Reduce irritation caused by bone-on-bone friction
- Relieve pain

Excellent Dr handled all my illnesses I can finally walk with right meds
The office was able to get me in with no problem, even with me trying to schedule the same day! Just came in with some allergy issues that were bothering me and not improving. I was worried about why they were happening but the doctor there was able to see me and help me figure out what was going on. He also followed up with my pharmacy and made sure I got what I needed. Overall great experience!

What are the risk factors for developing osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis development is influenced by various risk factors. Age plays a significant role, as bone density decreases naturally with aging. Women, especially post-menopausal ones, face a heightened risk due to the decline in protective estrogen levels. Additional factors include genetics, low body weight, inadequate intake of calcium and vitamin D, prolonged use of certain medications like corticosteroids, lifestyle choices such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, and the presence of certain diseases.
Can you reverse osteoporosis?
While osteoporosis cannot be completely reversed, its progression can be halted or slowed, and some improvement in bone density can be achieved. Treatment typically involves medications that reduce bone loss or promote bone formation. Combined with a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, regular weight-bearing exercises, and certain lifestyle modifications, it's possible to strengthen bones and reduce the risk of fractures.
Can men get osteoporosis?
Yes, while osteoporosis is more commonly associated with post-menopausal women, men are not immune. Men have a larger bone mass than women, which provides some protection, but as they age, they can also experience a decrease in bone density. Factors like low testosterone levels, certain medications, excessive alcohol consumption, and other underlying health conditions can contribute to osteoporosis in men.
