WHAT IS OSTEOPOROSIS?
When you hear the word osteoporosis, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Many people assume that only older individuals end up with osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis occurs when the bones inside of your body begin to weaken and thin.
Your bones end up losing some of their density due to hormones not being in balance or your body being deficient in nutrients. Once your bones start to lose their density, it causes them to turn brittle. Bones that are brittle are more prone to breakage, especially in the hip joints. Because of this, many people assume the condition is associated with growing older.
WHAT CAN A CHIROPRACTOR DO TO HELP CORRECT OR PREVENT OSTEOPOROSIS?
All too often, people who have osteoporosis try to stay away from a chiropractor for any number of different reasons. Unfortunately, they are doing more harm than good. A chiropractor can address what is causing your bones to thin in the first place.
Generally speaking, osteoporosis isn’t commonly caused by a lack of calcium like people think it is. It is caused by not having the right amount of hormones in your body and not being physically active. Your hormone levels can fluctuate based upon your stress levels, not eating the right foods, having a spine that isn’t aligned properly and not getting enough exercise.
With the help of a Max Living Chiropractor, you can get your hormones back in balance, improve the way your body responds to all of the stress in your life and help promote the healing process.
