Welcome back to the Stronger Bones Lifestyle Podcast. Today Debi welcomes back spinal surgeon Nick Birch to discuss the importance of orthopedic surgeons when it comes to the diagnosis of Osteoporosis.
In 2018 Nick founded OsteoscanUK with the intention of offering high quality bone health assessments locally, rather than in a hospital setting, using the Echolight REMS system and has carried out over 2200 REMS scans. Listen today as he discusses using melatonin to reverse osteoporosis, why a standard diagnosis of osteoporosis can lead to more bone loss and how orthopedic surgeons can use new technology like the REMS scan to make proper diagnoses.
Join Nick and Debi as they talk about polypharmacy, internal balance versus external balance, the body's ultimate goal and the importance of what we are doing to our bodies.
