Osteoporosis

What It Is:

Osteoporosis is the thinning and weakening of the bones in your body. Bones lose density due to hormonal imbalance and nutrient deficiency. As the bones lose density, they become much more brittle, which is why broken hips are associated with getting older.

How Chiropractic Can Help:

Many people use osteoporosis as an excuse to shy away from chiropractic. In reality, a chiropractor will directly address the cause of thinning bones. Osteoporosis is rarely a lack of calcium in the diet but a lack of physical activity and improper hormones. Hormones are affected by stress, toxicity, poor nutritional choices, spinal misalignments and lack of physical exercise. Chiropractic care will help balance hormones, improve how the body responds to stress and facilitate healing.
