Exercise in the Auburn Chiropractic Treatment Plan for Osteoporosis

Physical activity benefits everyone. Period. For those who have some health conditions like osteoporosis, physical activity is even more logical to offset its effects on daily life. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. takes care of osteoporotic patients who fear that they may hurt themselves if they exercise or move too much. Our Auburn chiropractic patients who have osteoporosis are urged to be physically active to decrease that fear and improve their quality of life.


Quality of life is crucial! Post-menopausal women with osteoporotic vertebral fractures who participated in a 1 hour group exercise session two times a week for 6 months appeared to have significant improvement in functional capacity measures – indicating that they could function and get around better - and a decreased risk and fear of falls. (1) That is a big deal! The occurrence of osteoporotic fractures is more than 40% which often culminate in reduced quality of life, enhanced risk of mortality after the fracture, greater economic demand, depression, loss of independence as well as pain. (2) It is no wonder that our Auburn osteoporotic patients worry about falls! Falling is dangerous due to the possible damage it can do to bones and the rest of the body which is especially not good for an osteoporotic with weakened bones! And fear of falling prevents one from fully participating in life. Exercising or doing physical activities that you can comfortably perform is important!


Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is mindful that not every patient complies with on our exercise recommendation. No shame or guilt from us! It’s human nature. We would like to see our Auburn osteoporosis patients boost their activity level in some way as we know 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 underway 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, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. and you will find the right mix of activities to boost your desire to participate in some physical activity exercise!
