GENEVA – Fox Valley Orthopedics in Geneva is now offering Body Composition Analysis by DEXA to help assess an individual's weight, nutrition, exercise and rehabilitation.
According to a news release from Fox Valley Orthopedics, one DEXA scan can provide information about body composition percentage, bone density, muscle balance and visceral and mass fat distribution. The release states that a scan can also be useful in determining how much fat surrounds an organ, which is a pre-indicator for Type 2 Diabetes.
A Body Composition Scan is also a precise way to track weight loss progress by measuring a body’s bone, muscle and fat. This information can provide useful insight into muscle imbalances and areas in need of improvement, the release stated.
“At Fox Valley Orthopedics, we use the DEXA Body Composition Scan to help people measure their fitness progress and weight loss goals,” stated Fox Valley Orthopedics’ Physician Assistant Alicia Heuser in the news release. “A DEXA scan is the gold standard in body composition analysis.”
A doctor’s order or prescription is not needed for a Body Composition Analysis scan, and a person must be 18 years or older. One scan is $100 and $150 for two scans when purchased together by the same individual. To schedule a scan, call 630-584-1400.
