Dr Proudman explains: “Osteoporosis is a bone disease that’s characterized by the loss of bone density. In other words, certain bones have decreased strength in comparison to other bones.“Osteopenia is the precursor to osteoporosis; this is when bone strength has been lost but it’s not to the degree that calls for a label of osteoporosis.”How does the decrease in bone density affect you? Dr Proudman says: “When bones are less dense, they aren’t as strong as they should be, which means they are more easily fractured.“In this case, regular activities of daily life such as walking, or a small trip up a curb, may actually cause a broken bone.”Letterkenny Chiropractic ClinicLetterkenny Chiropractic ClinicHow is Osteoporosis diagnosed?Dr Proudman said: “The main diagnostic tool is called a dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA scan) and it estimates the density/strength of the bone and risk of fracture.“The screening procedure is non-invasive, accurate and only takes 20 minutes. After the scan the results will be explained to you, as well as offering any advice, if needed.”The Letterkenny Chiropractic Clinic open day on 30th March 2019 is a fantastic opportunity to have a bone density scan and spinal check at a very reasonable price.To book your appointment, call: 0749125207 nowFor more visit www.letterkennychiropractic.comLetterkenny Chiropractic, GlencarOsteoporosis scans on offer at LK Chiropractic open day was last modified: March 24th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:body densityletterkenny chiropracticosteoporosisspinal check

Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Sunday said he would meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister for Mines Pralhad Joshi to seek solutions to restart the mining industry in Goa, which stands banned by the Supreme Court since 2018. Speaking to mediapersons on the sidelines of a function in Panaji on Sunday, Mr. Sawant said he would meet them both after Mr. Joshi familiarises himself with his portfolio. He reiterated that resolving the mining deadlock was a priority for his government. Last month, Mr. Sawant had said harvesting of mining dumps near the mining leases was one of the options his government was examining to resume the mining activity in the interest of stakeholders, despite the Supreme Court ban on mining in 88 leases. There are currently over 736 million tonnes of iron ore dumped in mountain-like heaps in Goa’s mining belt. Mr. Sawant is expected to finalise a policy for dump ore harvesting by July this year.
As Leander Paes and Rohan Bopanna were struggling to find their rhythm against Serbians Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac in the doubles rubber on Saturday, there was one very recognisable face sitting quietly on an aisle seat next to the section meant for VVIPs. Legendary Indian off-spinner Erapalli Prasanna’s interest for tennis dragged him to the KSLTA stadium here and he had a night to remember.While bigwigs from the Karnataka government and the state tennis body watched India’s doubles pair fight back from their comfortable couches, Prasanna looked at ease sitting on the plastic bucket seatsmeant for the public. “I love this game,” was Prasanna’s immediate reply when Mail Today reached out to him. “I follow this sport very closely. It’s not just cricket that I follow, I have interest in a lot of other sports and tennis definitely comes somewhere at the top.”Occasionally, people waved at him and Prasanna acknowledged them by raising his arms. “They are my friends. They know me well,” he added.In his heyday, Prasanna’s guile, accuracy and loop made him a constant threat to batsmen. The 74-year-old, who led Karnataka to two Ranji Trophy titles, scalped 189 wickets in 49 Tests. But it was captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi who brought the best out of him. He would challenge the batsmen to come out and hit him over the top, and with the flight he would offer, it was always enticing. A majority of Prasanna’s wickets – 116 –came under the captaincy of Pataudi. The diminutive off-spinner was always a threat to the batsmen he played against, but beyond that he was always a gentleman.advertisementSo what was a cricketer doing at the tennis court? Pat comes the reply: “I follow tennis very closely. I watch ATP events, Grand Slams and, with the Davis Cup tie happening in Bangalore, I had to be here. I wanted to see [Novak] Djokovic here but unfortunately, that didn’t happen. “I love watching Roger Federer but Djokovic is surely my favourite at the moment.”Besides giving time to his academy, Prasanna loves playing golf and Bopanna, who is a local boy, often turns up to play with the former cricketer and his friends at the Bangalore Golf Club. The International Premier Tennis League, the brainchild of Mahesh Bhupathi, is something that Prasanna wants to see unfold now. “I want to see it happening in India and I would love to watch the top players play live in front of me at the stadium. I will be there to see the matches in India,” he promised.
Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has signed a US$285-million contingency credit facility with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) that will provide the country with immediate financing during the emergency recovery phase after a sudden event.The agreement was signed on Monday (November 26), during a brief meeting with IDB officials in Washington DC, where the Prime Minister is attending the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Conference on Building Resilience to Natural Disasters from November 26 to 28.The loan is intended to buffer the financial shock of a disaster on Jamaica’s fiscal balance, thereby increasing the nation’s financial stability and efficiency as well as its disaster preparedness and response.The contingent financing, funded from the IDB’s Ordinary Capital, has a maturity period of 25 years, a grace period of 5.5 years, and an interest rate based on the London Inter-bank Offered Rate (LIBOR). This is a benchmark rate that indicates how much it costs banks to borrow from each other. The executing agency will be the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service.Meanwhile, speaking at the IMF Conference on Monday, Prime Minister Holness said governments in the Caribbean must continue to acknowledge the importance of including disaster risk management in fiscal policy frameworks, to efficiently and financially safeguard future development.“We are thankful for the teams at the IDB, IMF and World Bank for the continued support that your organisations are providing to our region with respect to climate resilience-building. That support has been helpful in the pursuit of a development pathway that is consistent with Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals,” Mr. Holness said.
