Listen Up, Fort Wayne Osteoporotic MEN! (Yes, Men!) | Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC04/30/2013Poor men! You get ignored when it comes to osteoporosis. You may have a three times lower chance of getting osteoporosis than women, but you do get osteoporosis. Indeed, men frequently suffer more with resulting osteoporotic fractures than women. So, men, Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC is here to take care of you. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor will check on your osteoporosis risk factors and care for you if you have signs of osteoporosis. We don’t want you to agonize with osteoporotic fractures needlessly! Overlooked Men are often overlooked when it comes to osteoporosis risk as well as osteoporosis related quality of life factors. 38% of men (as opposed to 45% of women) who get hip or other major fractures likely experienced other minor fractures beforehand. Plus, the risk of fractures – minor and severe - increases with age. This fact calls on physicians like your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC to offer careful osteoporosis management to reduce the risk as much as possible. (1) Quality of Life Specific health related quality of life (HRQOL) characteristics of male patients with osteoporosis can often be overlooked. Clinicians like your Fort Wayne chiropractor are urged to think about mental health referral especially for osteoporotic male patients having experienced two or more fractures. Osteoporotic men have more pain in activities of daily living and experience a lower quality of life. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC doesn’t want that. We want our osteoporotic men to enjoy their lives to the fullest…and they can!
