What is Osteoporosis?
Did you know that over 3 million people are suffering with Osteoporosis and don't get any help and are suffering with pain every day.
Osteoporosis is a condition where your bones lose their strength and thickness which leads to bones becoming weaker and more likely to break. Osteoporosis means some of the outside and inside of the bone become thin. Sometimes the structure starts to break down causing wider spaces, and bones can fracture easily with little or no force.
Osteoporosis is simple to diagnose using insights revealed by answering a straightforward questionnaire that sketches bone health, followed by a variety of tests to obtain a detailed picture of the condition of the bones.
How can Osteopaths help with Osteoporosis
Although osteoporosis cannot be cured, treatments are available to try to keep the bones strong and less likely to fracture.
The good news is that Osteopathy can help with this. Osteoporosis is not reversible, but osteopathy can play a huge role in supporting you by improving your bone health and reducing the risks of fractures. This is done by targeting the affected areas and doing gentle adjustments to realign and mobilise the musculoskeletal system. By doing this we can reduce the tension on the bones, improving your mobility and bone health.
