Clonmel Healthcare Launches International Osteoporosis Awareness Week to celebrate World Osteoporosis Day on 20th October
- Clonmel Healthcare runs week long social media campaign from 14th to 20th October 2019

However, the disease is often diagnosed rather late, because osteoporosis can progress inconspicuously for many years. Clonmel Healthcare wants to help those affected and their relatives to better understand the disease and recognise possible symptoms at an early stage.
During International Osteoporosis Awareness Week, Clonmel Healthcare will be using blog posts and infographics to explain symptoms, risk groups, types of diagnoses and possible prevention and treatment measures. Three proven treatment approaches for osteoporosis are particularly highlighted: exercise, e.g. gymnastics, whole-food nutrition and drug treatment as long-term therapy over several years. The decision as to which specific measures are suitable for a patient is made by a patient’s GP/Physician depending on the individual case.
