Pediatric Osteoporosis

Pediatric osteoporosis in children is characterized by weakening bone strength that may result in bone pain, fractures, and deformity if left untreated.

Most often, pediatric osteoporosis is related to a child's underlying medical condition, medications taken to treat that condition, and associated risk factors such as immobility.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Pediatric Osteoporosis Clinic in Manchester, NH provides diagnostic services, as well as ongoing treatment, for children with osteoporosis.
