Henry Ford Bone Health and Fracture Prevention Clinic

Our Bone Health Clinic specializes in broken bones, orthopedic trauma and bone health. We will work with you to understand your bone loss and advise you on what you can do to strengthen and improve your bone density, in order to avoid fractures.

Henry Ford Hospital was named one of the 2020 Star Performers by the American Orthopaedic Association’s (AOA) Own the Bone® program. This program aims to brings attention to the severe health implications of fragility fractures and the multi-faceted approach hospitals or clinics can incorporate to ensure these patients receive the most comprehensive care.

Risk factors

A key reason for bone loss is osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a serious medical condition that causes your bones to become weak. Weak bones can put you at higher risk for cracking or breaking a bone. Serious fractures can lead to hospitalization.

You are at risk of developing osteoporosis if you:

  • Have a history of a bone fracture
  • Have a history of certain medical conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis
  • Use certain prescribed medicines, for example, extended use of steroids such as prednisone
  • Use tobacco products
  • Drink alcohol
  • Have a family history of osteoporosis
  • Do not exercise
