Exercise in the Fort Wayne Chiropractic Treatment Plan for Osteoporosis

Physical activity is good for everyone. Period. For those who experience some health conditions like osteoporosis, physical activity makes even more sense to counter its impact on daily life. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic cares for osteoporotic patients who fear that they may harm themselves if they exercise or move too much. Our Fort Wayne 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 took part in a 1 hour group exercise session two times a week for 6 months displayed significant improvement in functional capacity tests – indicating that they could function and move around better - and a decreased risk and fear of falls. (1) That is significant! The occurrence of osteoporotic fractures is more than 40% which often result in reduced quality of life, increased risk of mortality after the fracture, greater economic burden, depression, loss of independence as well as pain. (2) It’s no wonder that our Fort Wayne osteoporotic patients fear falling! Falling is dangerous due to the possible damage it can do to bones and the rest of the body which is particularly 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 easily do is key!


Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is very sensitive to the fact that not every patient complies with on our exercise recommendation. No shame or guilt from us! That’s how we humans are! We would like to see our Fort Wayne osteoporosis patients increase their activity level in some way as we know it will have a positive effect. In a review of 20 published studies (1824 patients), exercise significantly increased lumbar spine and femoral neck bone mineral density and alleviated pain for primary osteoporosis patients. (3) Another study that is underway is evaluating how a 24-weeks-of-a-individualized 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, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic and you will put together the right mix of activities to boost your desire to take part in some physical activity exercise!
