Ready to become an active participant in your healthcare? Your first decision as the CEO of Your Health is easy: Join the Preventative Health Awareness Month initiative!
Preventative Health Awareness Month: A New Initiative Recognized by Health Canada
Preventative Health Awareness Month is a movement aimed at giving every Canadian the tools and knowledge they need to become the CEO of their own health and improve their quality of life.
As part of PHAM, a wide network of healthcare professionals are banding together to provide resources and educational content focused on helping you prevent illnesses, injuries, and other health problems before they can start. We also focus on how we can support you while you walk through the journey of a diagnosis.
Bone Scan Clinics
Calcium and other minerals help keep our bones strong and resistant to fractures. Unfortunately, as we age, our bones may begin to leech these minerals and become brittle and fragile. You’ve probably heard this condition referred to as osteoporosis.
Bone health is often silent so many people don’t realize they’ve developed osteoporosis until they’ve broken a bone. A bone mineral density scan is the only way to test for osteoporosis before a fracture occurs.
As part of our advocacy for a greater focus on preventative health measures, CEO of Your Health hosts bone scan clinics to help Canadians proactively monitor their bone health.
Our bone scan clinics use the revolutionary EcholightS Scan technology that has become widely used in Europe. Echolight has several advantages over traditional DXA scans, including:
- Radiation free
- REMS Radiofrequency Echographic Multi Spectrometry Bone Scans
- produces an automated report within minutes.
- Ability to reach patients all across the country in a wide range of settings such as in-home events, retirement homes, clinics, workplaces, conferences and mobile clinics.
- More accurate
- Calculates both bone mineral density and a Fragility Risk Fracture score, a measure of bone quality or bone strength which is not provided with most DXA scans.
