Exercise in the Millville Chiropractic Treatment Plan for Osteoporosis

Physical activity is good for everyone. Period. For those who deal with some health conditions like osteoporosis, physical activity is even more logical to offset its impact on daily life. Wilson Family Chiropractic cares for osteoporotic patients who worry fearfully that they may hurt themselves if they exercise or do too much. Our Millville chiropractic patients who have osteoporosis are urged to be physically active to reduce that fear and enhance 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 showed significant improvement in functional capacity tests – indicating that they could function and move around better - and a decreased risk and fear of falls. (1) That is significant! The occurrence of osteoporotic fractures is more than 40% which often result in reduced quality of life, greater risk of mortality after the fracture, higher economic burden, depression, loss of independence as well as pain. (2) It’s no wonder that our Millville osteoporotic patients fear falling! Falling is risky due to the potential damage it can wreak on bones and the rest of the body which is particularly not good for an person with osteoporosis and weakened bones! And fear of falling holds one back from fully enjoying life. Exercising or doing physical activities that you can comfortably do is key!


Wilson Family Chiropractic is mindful that not every patient does on our exercise recommendation. No shame or guilt from us! It’s human nature. We would like to see our Millville osteoporosis patients boost their activity level in some way as we know it will have a positive impact. In a review of 20 published studies (1824 patients), exercise significantly improved lumbar spine and femoral neck bone mineral density and lowered pain for primary osteoporosis patients. (3) Another study that is on-going is testing how a 24-weeks-of-a-individualized exercise routine of aerobic and strength training exercises might expectantly positively impact muscle strength, balance, and bone mineral density as well as pain. (4) Together, Wilson Family Chiropractic and you will put together the right mix of activities to raise your desire to take part in some physical activity exercise!
