GR senior citizens learn about osteoporosis

The statics are staggering for this disease.

One in two women and one in four men will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis.

For some seniors, this statistic was a shock, but for others it was something they already knew.

During an informational presentation at the Golden Hour Senior Center Thursday morning, attendees listened to Hayley Strauss from Peak Performance Physical Therapy on osteoporosis.

“Osteoporosis is something we deal with all the time,” Strauss said.

In fact, she sees so many clients for this disease a special class was created to meet the community needs.
