Expert Care in Prevention and Natural Treatment of Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a chronic, progressive disorder that steals bone from the skeleton, often predisposing our bodies to fractures of the hip, spine and wrist. Seniors may suffer disability or even death from osteoporosis induced fractures. Fifty percent of women and one in eight men will experience an osteoporosis-related fracture at some point in their lives.
Osteoporosis is not just an elderly disease. It was commonly thought that osteoporosis was considered a disorder that only the elderly would develop. Historically, we specifically related osteoporosis with older women whose posture were slightly hunched over or people who just couldn’t stand up straight. Today, the reality is that an estimated 20 million American women suffer from symptoms of osteoporosis, and 80 percent of them are unaware of it.

Natural Treatment of Osteoporosis can Help
Many people still confuse osteoporosis with arthritis, and do not get evaluated until their joints are swollen and they have pain and discomfort. Even though osteoporosis is asymptomatic until trauma induces a bone fracture, it is crucial to discover the current health of your bones and if need be, modify your lifestyle to prevent this brittle bone disease.
Talk to the Chiropractic physicians at Concept Chiropractic and Rehab about active ways to understand the causes of osteoporosis and improve the longevity of your bones. The staff at Concept Chiropractic treat patients every day of all ages and can help people suffering from osteoporosis improve the quality of their lives.
