Chiropractic treatment for Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis, contrary to what most people think, can be treated with chiropractic.The chiropractor is an experienced professional who adapts his treatment and will use the appropriate technique for each specific case.
Osteoporosis, before it reaches an advanced level, can be prevented. From the age of forty, it is advisable to carry out preventive bone osteodensitometry, in order to measure your bone density in advance.
Safe and innocuous treatment
Before reaching a level of osteoporosis, we go through a state called osteopenia, which is a lower level of bone demineralization.
In the care of patients with osteopenia or osteoporosis, specific chiropractic techniques are used with absolute safety, adapted to the bone density level of each patient and with the help of a specially designed chiropractic table that are adjusted to this kind of condition.
Our discipline, in fact, is associated with vertebral manipulation or adjustments. But we have three important points to make in this regard:
1. The adjustments, performed by certified professionals, are safe and painless.
2.There are specific manual chiropractic techniques and material adapted to osteoporosis.
3.Among the different types of adjustments, the chiropractor chooses the most adapted and appropriate.
In the case of osteoporosis, these are adapted and gentle adjustments to eliminate vertebral subluxations that interrupt the correct communication between the nervous system and the rest of the body, and also blocks the body’s power of self-healing and self-regulation, a capacity that in the case of osteoporosis is essential, given the high risk of fractures associated with this pathology.
Treatment for osteoporosis through Chiropractic
The goal of the chiropractic treatment is to restore full and maximum joint range of motion, quickly regain the ability to move, secret and key to prevent and combat the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle, due to the difficulty of being able to move easily and correctly due to the advance of osteoporosis and thus affecting the quality of life.
Step by step treatment
Chiropractic treatment indicated for osteoporosis problems focuses on vertebral, manual and gentle adjustments. Chiropractic care is a safe and innocuous therapeutic approach, which with its diagnosis, facilitates the prevention of a variety of injuries and/or conditions associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous system.
The first steps your chiropractor takes in treating elbow problems from epitrochleitis will consist of a series of tests to be able to find the root of the injury and to be able to create a personalized treatment program adapted to your specific case.
A spinal column with a great range of motion is the secret to slowing down and regulating the bone demineralization process as much as possible.
CONTRAINDICATED TO SIT
In the first 10 to 15 minutes after your visit it is contraindicated to sit down.
During this period of time it is necessary to walk to mobilize the joints that we just release and walking also facilitate better joint lubrication and nutrition of the intervertebral discs.
IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS
During the next 24 hours following the first sessions avoid any excessive effort.
Otherwise, the effectiveness of the adjustment received will decrease.
BEFORE AND AFTER
Before and after every visit, avoid all kinds of tension.
Both physical and mental. The more relaxed you are the more benefit you will get from your treatment.
The set appointments must be respected.
They have been established to obtain the best results.
AFTER AN ADJUSTMENT
The sensations that each person may experience after an adjustment may vary without affecting the result and benefit of the treatment in the medium and long term.
After an adjustment, you may experience a feeling of relaxation, having a lot of energy, general well-being, disappearance or relief of symptoms, soreness or pain.
You may sometimes even experience discomfort since the body has to adapt to the new posture and position.
