Osteoporosis: A Lifestyle Approach

Date: 19 Aug 2020
Time: 8:30pm - 9.30pm AEST

Where: Webinar (AU)


The next Wellbeing and Lifestyle Medicine (WLM) webinar, titled Osteoporosis: a lifestyle approach across the life course and presented by Dr Emily Calton will cover evidence based lifestyle practices for prevention and management and much more.

Osteoporosis is a prevalent and debilitating condition in Australia. The rising prevalence of nutrient-poor diets and sedentary lifestyles are key risk factors for osteoporosis, as is an ageing population. To minimise the incidence of osteoporosis, a proactive preventative approach needs to be taken and lifestyle across the life course must be considered.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this webinar with respect to the prevention and management of osteoporosis chiropractors will be able to do the following:

  • Ask the patient relevant lifestyle questions as part of conducting a thorough assessment
  • Identify red flags to look out for and the appropriate response to these
  • Identify and briefly explain diagnostic tests
  • Identify and promote evidence-based lifestyle factors that may help or hinder the patient using appropriate resources
