Osteoporosis is a metabolic disease which causes the loss of bone tissue as well as the deterioration of bone structure. It mainly affects the bones bearing the most weight (pelvis, femur, and lumbar vertebras). When bone loss happens, it directly results in fractures of the hip and lumbar spine. Medical professionals say that Osteoporosis is most commonly developed because of lack of exercise. Consistent weight-bearing exercises helps prevent this loss of bone mass. Other Chiropractic care, such as correcting spinal misalignments and optimizing nerve system functioning, will allow your body to use proper nutrition and exercise to benefit your body, keeping your bones strong and healthy.
