Exercise in the Montreal Chiropractic Treatment Plan for Osteoporosis

Physical activity is good for everyone. Period. For those who deal with certain health conditions like osteoporosis, physical activity makes even more sense to counter its effects on daily life. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic cares for osteoporotic patients who fear that they may harm themselves if they exercise or do too much. Our Montreal 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 joined in a 1 hour group exercise session twice a week for 6 months displayed significant improvement in functional capacity tests – indicating that they were able to function and move around better - and a decreased risk and fear of falls. (1) That is significant! The occurrence of osteoporotic fractures is more than 40% which often culminate 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 Montreal osteoporotic patients worry about falls! Falling is risky due to the potential damage it can do to bones and the rest of the body which is especially not good for an person with osteoporosis and weakened bones! And fear of falling prevents one from fully enjoying life. Exercising or performing physical activities that you can safely perform is important!


Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is well aware that not every patient complies with on our exercise recommendation. No shame or guilt from Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic! It’s human nature. We would like to see our Montreal osteoporosis patients boost their activity level in some way as we know it will have a beneficial impact. In a review of 20 published studies (1824 patients), exercise significantly increased lumbar spine and femoral neck bone mineral density and alleviated pain for primary osteoporosis patients. (3) Another study that is underway is testing how a 24-weeks-of-a-individualized 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, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic will put together the right mix of activities to boost your desire to take part in some physical activity exercise!
