Bone Density Screening
Bone density screening is a simple procedure that determines your bone health. The test measures your bone calcium and density to identify osteoporosis and determine your risk for fractures. Valuable information about the health of your bones can be gathered through this test, often in time to prevent osteoporosis. Call 903.315.2130 for an appointment.
Women’s Health Physical Therapy Program
Through the outpatient Physical Therapy Department at Good Shepherd’s Institute for Healthy Living, this powerful and natural rehabilitation service helps women of all ages heal and regain strength using specially designed exercises and stretches. Good Shepherd’s women’s health physical therapists evaluate and care for conditions that are not commonly treated at one’s OB/GYN or general practitioner’s office, but treatment is coordinated in close collaboration with each patient’s physician. The Women’s Health Physical Therapy Program treats various matters involving incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, prenatal and postpartum pain, pelvic pain and lymphedema.
Good Shepherd’s Women’s Health Physical Therapy Program has specially trained physical therapists who evaluate and treat patients to increase activity levels, decrease pain and promote health. Female therapists work with patients to discover the cause of their pain or decreased functional status. Once this is determined, an advanced trained therapist provides treatment options such as manual physical therapy techniques, stretches, strengthening exercises and a range of other approaches to give women back their quality of life.
