Exercise in the Murfreesboro Chiropractic Treatment Plan for Osteoporosis

Physical activity benefits everyone. Period. For those who deal with certain health conditions like osteoporosis, physical activity makes even more sense to counteract its effects on daily life. Most Chiropractic Clinic sees osteoporotic patients who fear that they may harm themselves if they exercise or do too much. Our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients who deal with osteoporosis are encouraged to be physically active to decrease that fear and enhance 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 twice a week for 6 months appeared to have significant improvement in functional capacity tests – meaning they were able to function and move 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 result in decreased quality of life, increased risk of mortality after the fracture, higher economic demand, depression, loss of independence as well as pain. (2) It’s no wonder that our Murfreesboro osteoporotic patients worry about falls! Falling is risky 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 performing physical activities that you can safely perform is key!


Most Chiropractic Clinic is well aware that not every patient follows through on our exercise recommendation. No shame or guilt from us! It’s human nature. We would like to see our Murfreesboro 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 lowered pain for primary osteoporosis patients. (3) Another study that is on-going is testing how a 24-weeks-of-a-personalized exercise routine of aerobic and strength training exercises might expectantly positively affect muscle strength, balance, and bone mineral density as well as pain. (4) With you, Most Chiropractic Clinic will find the right mix of activities to boost your desire to participate in some physical activity exercise!
