Stroke and Osteoporosis Screenings Coming to Memphis
Memphis, Missouri - Residents living in and around the Memphis, Missouri community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. Scotland County Fitness Center will host Life Line Screening on 5/7/2013. The site is located at 504 Grand Ave in Memphis. Richard Tiller of Clarksdale, MO attended a Life Line Screening and said, "If I would not have had the screening done I probably would not have known I had an aneurysm".
Four key points every person needs to know:
Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability
80% of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke
Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke
Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient
Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women.
Packages start at $159. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-237-1287 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required.
