Chiropractic Care for Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a metabolic disease that causes loss of joint tissue and degeneration of bone in and around the joints. Osteoporosis in the hip or knee can be debilitating conditions that are extremely painful, and can often lead to other chronic conditions if it is not treated properly. Symptoms of Osteoporosis in the back can include a shooting pain in the knees, hip, groin, and thigh area. Osteoporosis has a tremendous impact on the knee joints as it is also susceptible to regular wear and tear caused by the aging process. Osteoporosis pain that starts in the knees is not normally felt by patients in their hips until the condition has begun to impact the nerves. Symptoms of Osteoporosis usually peak in colder weather or when patients engage in physical activities.
Chiropractic care at Dilliard Chiropractic P.C. in El Cajon is especially beneficial for patients with Osteoporosis by helping with reducing pain and assisting with increasing range of motion. Chiropractic care typically involves a chiropractic adjustment, joint manipulation, trigger point therapy, and massage in some cases.
