Exercise in the Fort Wayne Chiropractic Treatment Plan for Osteoporosis

Physical activity benefits everyone. Period. For those who experience certain health conditions like osteoporosis, physical activity is even more logical to counter its impact on daily life. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc cares for osteoporotic patients who fear that they may hurt themselves if they exercise or do too much. Our Fort Wayne 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 took part in a 1 hour group exercise session twice a week for 6 months appeared to have significant improvement in functional capacity measures – indicating that they were able to function and move around better - and a reduced risk and fear of falls. (1) That is significant! The occurrence of osteoporotic fractures is more than 40% which often culminate in decreased quality of life, increased risk of mortality after the fracture, greater economic demand, depression, loss of independence as well as pain. (2) It is no wonder that our Fort Wayne osteoporotic patients worry about falls! Falling is risky due to the potential damage it can do to bones and the rest of the body which is especially not good for an person with osteoporosis and weakened bones! And fear of falling prevents one from fully participating in life. Exercising or doing physical activities that you can comfortably perform is key!


Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is mindful that not every patient does on our exercise recommendation. No shame or guilt from Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc! That’s how we humans are! We would like to see our Fort Wayne osteoporosis patients boost their activity level in some way as we are sure it will have a beneficial impact. In a review of 20 published studies (1824 patients), exercise significantly increased lumbar spine and femoral neck bone mineral density and lowered pain for primary osteoporosis patients. (3) Another study that is on-going is evaluating how a 24-weeks-of-a-personalized exercise routine of aerobic and strength training exercises may expectantly positively impact muscle strength, balance, and bone mineral density as well as pain. (4) Together, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc and you will put together the right mix of activities to boost your desire to participate in some physical activity exercise!
