Reduce The Pain And Improve Your Bone Density With Our Professional Osteopathy For Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is frequently referred to as the "silent illness" because, despite an estimated 3 million cases in the UK, only a tiny percentage of patients know their condition. It is estimated that most of them get to know they have a condition after breaking a bone. Osteoporosis causes more than 300,000 fractures each year. Also, bones weakened by osteoporosis are more prone to breaking from simple knocks or falls.
Bone density, or how tightly the bone tissue is woven together, determines how strong a bone is. The bone becomes brittle if density reduces (the more significant gap between the bone tissue). Although losing bone density is a natural component that comes with ageing, certain people can get it far more quickly.
The following are some factors that raise the risk of osteoporosis:
Menopause; in the first few years following menopause, women lose bone quickly;
Prolonged usage of oral corticosteroid
Family history of osteoporosis, particularly if a parent has ever suffered a hip fracture;
Long-term usage of drugs that may have an impact on hormone levels or bone density;
A body mass index (BMI) below normal;
Smoking and binge drinking.
Depending on the severity, osteoporosis can be painful too. If you have osteoporosis and are looking for treatment methods, we have you covered!

Osteoporosis is caused by decreased bone mineral density, which results in thin bones and a higher risk of fractures. Many people are affected by osteoporosis, but older women are most at risk.
As a result of the declining bone mass throughout time, the skeleton becomes fragile. Bones become less resilient to fracturing under pressure or force when their bone density declines. When one portion of the bone begins to deteriorate, the remainder soon follows, making the patient more prone to hip fractures.
Numerous factors contribute to osteoporosis, including insufficient calcium intake, a lack of weight-bearing exercise, and decreased blood flow. Another critical factor is said to be overindulging in alcohol. Sadly, this issue is hard to spot and typically only shows up in a bone scan. Patients frequently become aware of the illness after a bone fracture that doesn't heal as rapidly as anticipated.
Because of the hormonal changes that result in low calcium levels in their bodies, postmenopausal women are more likely to develop osteoporosis. Calcium is absorbed into the bloodstream and integrated into the bones to ensure bone strength and hardness. Other treatment options in modern medicine include hormone replacement therapy (HRT), dietary changes to increase calcium intake and regular exercise.
It has been discovered that osteopathy, a gentle form of manual therapy, is an effective osteopathic treatment. It functions by enhancing the body's reaction to nervous system stimuli.
Significance Of Osteopathy For Osteoporosis
Based on the link between structure and function, osteopathic treatment works on the neuro-musculoskeletal system to activate the body's natural self-regulatory mechanism.
You can alter circumstances predisposing you to illness problems, such as impaired balance and an increased risk of falling due to hyperkyphosis and diminished muscle strength.
Functional osteopathic and soft tissue techniques that increase the ability to accept changes in length and tension more efficiently are used in the therapeutic approach to improve joint mobility and muscle responses during osteoporosis.
It enhances the capacity of structures to adapt to movements with a feasible decrease in pain and functional limitations, as well as increased autonomy (self-sufficiency and independence).
Following the tenet that a person's level of mobility is a risk factor for the emergence of pain, functional impotence, and instability, it pays particular attention to mobility constraints at all levels, including articulation, myofascial, visceral, and head.
We Will Help You
For the treatment of osteoporosis, patients can speak with osteopaths, which is especially advantageous for those recovering after surgery or a fracture. Any treatment should be administered by a trained professional familiar with your condition and specific needs. You should always consult a skilled osteopath because spine treatment could have profound effects.
Osteopathy attempts to alter the way that cells behave, as well as the way that blood flows through organs. To improve the patient's health on all levels, an osteopath will consider how the bone tissue interacts with various soft tissues in the body. In addition to treating the symptoms, an osteopathic treatment plan aims to identify the cause of the condition and correct it by removing any impediments to the body's natural healing processes.
Our therapists at La Dolce Studio in Fulham are highly qualified and experienced. Our experts will thoroughly analyse your case in a welcoming and professional setting and give you a treatment plan specifically designed for your symptoms and requirements.
