Chiropractic treatment for osteoporosis and osteoarthritis


Nathan, at Chicago Chiropractic center quotes from the statement of American Chiropractic Association that chronic pain due to musculoskeletal reasons is one of the most common factors in senior citizens. 18 percent of all chiropractic patients are older than 65. Most people assume that high speed manipulation in chiropractic treatments, specially to the joints that result in popping sound is a good way to treat these issues. While these are safe, they are not advdisable to people who suffer from severe osteoporosis. In this case, one should go for soft tissue or low force techniques of spinal manipulation.

Diet is one of the most important parts in chiropractic tools. Agrees Samantha from an Irvine chiropractic center “We endorse what the National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends, have lots of calcium and Vitamin D along with regular exercises. We provide our patients with the best dietary guidelines that are simple to follow and easy to adapt. We also provide exercise guidelines like the duration, intensity, frequency and type of exercise one has to do.”
