It’s a fact of life that as we age, we begin to lose our bone density. Osteoporosis is a process where the bones start to become – not only thin – but also fragile. Osteoporosis is a very common cause for hip or vertebral fractures in senior population. Osteopenia is a classification for bone density that is a precursor to osteoporosis. Someone with osteopenia has a lower bone density than the normal ideal density, but it is not low enough for an osteoporosis diagnosis. To be diagnosed with osteopenia, you will have a bone mineral density T-score between -1.0 and -2.5. Women are at higher risk than men at developing poor bone density. The risk is even higher if there is a genetic predisposition to develop osteoporosis in the family. Other factors such as lowered sex hormones, long-term corticosteroid drugs, smoking, extended immobilization of the body, infection, alcohol abuse, thyroid problems, adrenal gland abnormality, scuba diving, nutritional deficiencies, chemotherapy and radiation can also lower your bone density.
While you can never regain the bone density you had in your youth, you can help prevent rapidly thinning bones, even after your diagnosis. Here’s a breakdown of five lifestyle steps to help you on the road to better bone health.
1) Get your vitamin D and calcium levels checked at your physician. Ensure you are taking enough from food and supplements.
Any patient being treated for osteoporosis should have both calcium and vitamin D levels checked in blood tests. Most people get less than 500 milligrams of calcium in their daily diet. Sun exposure helps produce vitamin D, but as we get older, our skin is not as efficient at making vitamin D. Also, if we’re careful to use sunscreen, we’re at risk of having low vitamin D level. Living through long Canadian winters is not easy either and definitely does not help in absorbing appropriate quantities of vitamin D. If you have osteopenia, it’s generally wise to go see your physician to get the right calcium and vitamin D doses and the right types for your bones. If you have no issues with bone density and you are looking to preserve good bone health, talk to your chiropractor or physiotherapist about what’s the best calcium and vitamin D supplement you can take. Examples of food rich in calcium are low-fat milk or soy milk, cottage cheese, low-fat yogurt, salmon, calcium-fortified orange juice, cooked spinach, turnip greens, collard greens, and cooked broccoli. Make sure you start adding them to your diet.
2) Exercise. Exercise. and Exercise!
Calcium supplements and osteoporosis medications can stop bone loss, allowing the bones to rebuild themselves. But the body needs some sort of “encouragement” to rebuild them. The skeleton needs to be under stress so it will get stronger. That’s why exercise is important for better bone health. Weight bearing exercises (against gravity) such as walking, jogging, light aerobics, and biking against resistance are great. Abdominal exercises, lower back exercises, yoga, Pilates, and tai chi can help strengthen the spine. Swimming on the other hand doesn’t help in building bones. It helps however in relieving arthritic pain. Before you get too excited incorporating exercises to your lifestyle, make you that you always consult with a medical professional before starting.
3) You may want to start reducing alcohol intake and eliminating cigarettes.
Alcohol in excess causes about 2% bone loss in a year’s time. Nicotine also causes 2% bone loss. If you’re having alcohol and nicotine both in excess, the combined bone loss is actually doubled – 8% bone loss! Alcohol in moderation – 1 or 2 reasonable drinks a week – is harmless. Keep in mind that alcohol and nicotine can interfere with lots of supplements and medications. Once again, always consult with your doctor.
4) Consider chiropractic and physiotherapy
Changing your lifestyle requires some guidance. Chiropractors and physiotherapists can help you regain mobility, flexibility, and reduce overall tension, so that your exercise can be enjoyable and pain-free. Patients who visit chiropractors and physiotherapists often report that they can run better, sleep better, and perform more workout challenges at the gym with ease and less discomfort. When exercises are pleasant, you can rest assured that your bone density is being well taken care of.
5) Consult with your medical doctor about getting a Bone Density Testing
A bone mineral density test (BMD) is the only way to determine the extent of your bone loss. The gold-standard bone density test is dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). At Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic, chiropractors will frequently recommend that certain high-risk patients perform this test to ensure that their spine and other bone structures can withstand chiropractic adjustments and/or mobilization. This is important if your chiropractor noticed that you have high risk factors for poor bone density during your medical interview.
A word of advice for parents: the sooner you teach your kids about how to preserve bone density through proper diet, supplements and exercises, the better their bone density will be when they reach late adulthood. Talk to them about it today.
A Vlog (Video Blog); What is Acupuncture? ** طب سوزنی **
A brief explanation by Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic’s physiotherapist Ghaith Dhaidan about what to expect during an acupuncture session. Acupuncture provides you with so many benefits that are non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical such as less pain, more relaxation, better blood flow to the muscle, tissue regeneration, and more endorphins released to make you feel at ease and stress-free.

What Is Acupuncture? Acupuncture is one of the oldest form of healing in the world. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that there are as many as 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body, which are connected by 20 pathways called meridians. These meridians conduct energy, or Qi (pronounced “chi”), between the surface of the body and its internal organs. Each point has a different effect on the Qi that passes through it. Qi is believed to help regulate balance in the body. Qi can be affected by external and internal disruptive forces such as disease, stress, and environmental factors. Acupuncture on specific meridians known to house a disrupted Qi can help to regulate the Qi and allow recovery of the body.
Health Benefits of Acupuncture: Today, several scientific theories have been presented as to exactly how acupuncture works. Many research efforts conclude that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system. Others pointed that this treatment stimulates the body to produce substances called endorphins, which reduce pain. Acupuncture can also modulate muscle contraction and relaxation, promote tissue healing and decrease inflammation/pain.
Does It Hurt? Acupuncture needles are solid and hair-thin, and they are not designed to cut the skin. They are also inserted to much more shallow levels than hypodermic needles used to withdraw blood. While each person experiences acupuncture differently, most people feel only a minimal amount of pain (felt as a quick prick) as the needles are inserted. Some people reportedly feel a sensation of excitement, while others feel relaxed.
Precaution: Because the treatment is drug-free, patients do not have to worry about taking several doses of a medication or suffering a possible adverse reaction. Properly administered, acupuncture does no harm. However, you are required to report to your practitioner before having acupuncture if you have a pacemaker, are pregnant or bleed easily. Practitioners always wash their hands before treatment, disinfect the skin, and use sterile needles.
Conditions Treated by Acupuncture? At Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic, our chiropractors and physiotherapist treat common ailments such as arthritis, neuralgia, nerve pain in hands/legs, sciatica, radiculopathy, headaches, tendinitis, weakness in muscles, tense muscles, neck/shoulder pain and etc. Acupuncture works very well in combination with chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage therapy and other manual therapy.
