Osteoporosis is a metabolic disease which causes the loss of bone tissue and a disorganisation of your bone structure.
Did you know that over 200 million people worldwide are affected by osteoporosis and the ailments which are caused by low bone mass. Many people have come to Spinal Care Clinics with this disease and we have been able to help them very successfully.
The loss of bone mass and osteoporosis have been linked to several health and lifestyle factors. These include:
Menopause (osteoporosis is more common in women than in men),
Those aged over 50 years of age,
A history of smoking,
Vitamin D deficiency,
Inadequate dietary protein.
Osteoporosis predominantly affects weight-bearing bones such as your pelvis, femur (thigh bone), and lumbar vertebrae. These are critical structures within your body. As such, the loss of bone mass in these body parts can result in debilitating hip and lumbar spine fractures.
What are the symptoms of Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis develops slowly over several years. So, you may not notice any warning signs or symptoms until an accident causes a bone fracture. However, some of the most common injuries found in people suffering from osteoporosis include:
a stooping position (this occurs when the bones in the spine are fractured and it becomes difficult to support the weight of the body),
fractures of the ribs,
chronic pain as a result of these various fractures.

Continued chiropractic care can directly address any spinal misalignments. These misalignments can impact and impede the proper functioning of your nervous system. At Spinal Care Clinics, we can realign your spine to ensure your nervous system is working efficiently in conjunction with the rest of your body.
Regular exercise can help prevent the onset of osteoporosis, but along with this we recommend sports massage therapies. Recent medical studies have identified sports massages as eminently effective support measures for the healing of bone and joint related injuries.
