Are you suffering from osteoporosis? Is it impacting your ability to live a happy and comfortable day-to-day life?
Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones become porous and brittle, making them more susceptible to fracture. It affects millions of people worldwide, especially older adults and those who have had a lack of calcium and vitamin D throughout their lives. While osteoporosis can be managed with medications, there are also several non-invasive treatments that can help ease the pain associated with this condition.
At SA Wellness Centre, our qualified and experienced chiropractors can relieve tension in the joints and muscles affected by your osteoporosis, and ideally improve mobility, reduce inflammation and increase your range of motion as a result.
Through a series of chiropractic adjustments, we aim to manage both acute and chronic back pain caused by osteoporosis by improving posture and increasing blood flow to affected areas. Additionally, we may also recommend lifestyle changes such as diet modifications or exercise programs to support bone health.
Physiotherapy treatment may also help to alleviate the pain and stiffness associated with your condition, by restoring movement and function through exercise programs tailored specifically to your needs. Our professional physiotherapists use various techniques such as stretching exercises and strengthening exercises to improve flexibility, reduce muscle spasms, prevent further injury and increase mobility.
These exercises are designed to improve balance and posture while decreasing pain caused by osteoporosis, so that you can maintain your independence for as long as possible.
SA Wellness Centre’s holistic approach towards helping our clients means we might also apply a combination of massage therapy, cupping and compression therapy to provide relief from symptoms like chronic pain, muscle stiffness or joint soreness without medication or invasive procedures. By releasing endorphins during treatment sessions, we’re able to provide immediate relief while promoting healing over time with regular visits.
During your initial consultation, we’ll take a detailed medical history and speak to you about your condition, before conducting a variety of physical assessments so that we can better understand your osteoporosis condition. This allows us to develop a tailored treatment and management plan just for you.
