Osteoporosis is a condition that causes bones to become weak and fragile. Small stresses can cause fractures to the weakened bone. This condition occurs when bones can’t keep up with the replacement of old bone tissue. A few of the symptoms experienced are back pain, gradual loss of height, poor posture, and easily fractured bones. To prevent some of these symptoms from being severe, Bolingbrook Family Chiropractic recommends weight bearing exercise and chiropractic care!
Unlike typical chiropractic adjustments, chiropractic care for patients with osteoporosis does not use powerful force. Typically, low force adjustments and soft tissue techniques are more appropriate for these patients. Unfortunately, you can’t feel your bones getting weaker, which is where we come in! We will administer a complete examination to assess where your bones are at, and then customize your treatments according to what you need. One key is to identify and treat patients who have not yet had a fracture, but are at risk of one. Early treatment will help reduce the long-term effects and symptoms. We will advise you with exercises that help with core stability and bone density. In addition, we may suggest diet modifications or certain nutritional supplements to help support your bones and keep them as strong as possible.
With the help of Bolingbrook Family Chiropractic we will make sure your bones stay strong long into the future! Give us a call today to let us help you be on your path away from pain!
