Exercise in the Plainville Chiropractic Treatment Plan for Osteoporosis

Physical activity benefits everyone. Period. For those who deal with some health conditions like osteoporosis, physical activity is even more logical to counteract its effects on daily life. Layden Chiropractic takes care of osteoporotic patients who worry fearfully that they may harm themselves if they exercise or do too much. Our Plainville chiropractic patients who deal with osteoporosis are urged 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 took part in a 1 hour group exercise session two times a week for 6 months showed significant improvement in functional capacity tests – meaning they were able to function and move around better - and a reduced risk and fear of falls. (1) That is a big deal! The occurrence of osteoporotic fractures is greater than 40% which often result in decreased quality of life, enhanced risk of mortality after the fracture, greater economic burden, depression, loss of independence as well as pain. (2) It is no wonder that our Plainville osteoporotic patients worry about falls! Falling is dangerous due to the potential damage it can wreak on bones and the rest of the body which is especially not good for an osteoporotic with weakened bones! And fear of falling prevents one from fully participating in life. Exercising or doing physical activities that you can easily perform is important!


Layden Chiropractic is mindful that not every patient does on our exercise recommendation. No shame or guilt from Layden Chiropractic! It’s human nature. We would like to see our Plainville osteoporosis patients boost 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 improved lumbar spine and femoral neck bone mineral density and lowered pain for primary osteoporosis patients. (3) Another study that is underway 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, Layden Chiropractic will put together the right mix of activities to raise your desire to take part in some physical activity exercise!
