Chiropractic care is safe for Osteoporosis

Frequently patients who come to Grant Chiropractic Health Center for care are concerned about Osteoporosis and rightly so. While Chiropractic is very safe, gentle techniques must be used to avoid any injury to ribs. Our office has many gentle techniques and have been treating osteoporotic patients for years. The best thing to do however is to avoid osteoporosis as much as possible.

Both men and women come into my Chiropractic office with this condition although women start sooner than men. This is because they lose the hormones necessary for bone development sooner. We need Calcium, Magnesium, Vit. D, along with stomach acids and other things to make strong bones.

Magnesium may be just as important if not more important for bones. Stomach acids are important for proper absorbtion of Calcium and Vit D is important for proper bone production.

We get Vit D from the sun but since we lather ourselves with sunscreen, not much Vit D can be made. And while I agree that sunscreen will protect us from Ultra Violet Light damage to our cells and small amount of direct sunlight can provide helath benefits. Talk to your doctor about how long you should be in the sun with no protection
