Exercise in the Tonawanda Chiropractic Treatment Plan for Osteoporosis

Physical activity benefits everyone. Period. For those who deal with some health conditions like osteoporosis, physical activity is even more logical to counteract its effects on daily life. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation cares for osteoporotic patients who fear that they may harm themselves if they exercise or move too much. Our Tonawanda chiropractic patients who deal with osteoporosis are urged to be physically active to decrease that fear and improve their quality of life.


Quality of life is important! Post-menopausal women with osteoporotic vertebral fractures who joined in a 1 hour group exercise session two times a week for 6 months displayed significant improvement in functional capacity tests – meaning they could function and get around better - and a decreased risk and fear of falls. (1) That is a big deal! The occurrence of osteoporotic fractures is greater than 40% which often result in reduced quality of life, greater risk of mortality after the fracture, greater economic demand, depression, loss of independence as well as pain. (2) It’s no wonder that our Tonawanda osteoporotic patients fear falling! Falling is risky due to the possible damage it can do to bones and the rest of the body which is especially not good for an osteoporotic with weakened bones! And fear of falling holds one back from fully participating in life. Exercising or performing physical activities that you can safely perform is key!


Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is mindful that not every patient follows through on our exercise recommendation. No shame or guilt from Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation! That’s how we humans are! We would like to see our Tonawanda osteoporosis patients boost their activity level in some way as we know it will have a positive effect. In a review of 20 published studies (1824 patients), exercise significantly improved lumbar spine and femoral neck bone mineral density and alleviated pain for primary osteoporosis patients. (3) Another study that is on-going is evaluating how a 24-weeks-of-a-individualized exercise routine of aerobic and strength training exercises may expectantly positively impact muscle strength, balance, and bone mineral density as well as pain. (4) Together, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation and you will find the right mix of activities to raise your desire to take part in some physical activity exercise!
