DEXA Scanner

The only health clinic in South Devon offering a DEXA scanning service to the local community to measure your bone density. You can self refer for a scan by calling 01626 353334 or if you would like to discuss any concerns that you you may have osteoporosis with a Chiropractor.

Our clinic has invested in a new DTX-200 DEXA scanner. This highly advanced scanner takes an x ray scan of your wrist to measure your bone density. The practitioner will input your personal details on to a computer with your age, weight and height measured. The computers technology then matches your bone mineral density against the national average for your age generating your individual T score.

Your will receive a print out of your T score plotted on the UK national average graph. If it is found to be below the national average and in the osteopenic or osteoporotic range you will be given advice and even supplements to strengthen and maintain your bone density. A GP letter is then sent out with a copy of the scan results to discuss the medications available to you for osteoporosis.

This service is an excellent preventative against future osteoporosis by having your bone density checked early to make simple lifestyle changes to decrease your fracture risk significantly.

For any elderly new patients to the practice be confident that your Chiropractor will check your bone strength before commencing treatment to decrease your risk of any complications.
