Osteoporosis is a condition where the bones have become less dense and more brittle. This puts the person at a greater risk of breaking a bone with a fall or other injury. Chiropractic can help prevent osteoporosis from getting worse and can help reduce the incidence of injuries. The goal of chiropractic is to restore normal position and motion of bones and joints to allow the nerves to function properly. When the spine is aligned and free of subluxations, this is conducive to a better sense of balance and better motion in the joints. The more freely a joint is able to move, the healthier the bones, discs, ligaments, and muscles are.
