Compression fractures. Spinal curvatures. Generalized poor health. You want to avoid these things! So do what you can to prevent osteoporosis. Nutrition is a dominant component in doing precisely that, and Moriarty Chiropractic is your Nashua healthcare partner to aid you. Let's review some great osteoporosis-prevention lifestyle selections for your whole family.

Moriarty Chiropractic comprehends well the previously listed aftermath of osteoporosis in both men and women and that osteoporosis could be looked at as a disease of youth. You build bone mass when you are young. If you build enough then, you'll have enough to lose a little as you age. Odd, isn't it?

  • Eat a nutritious diet, specifically between 10 and 14 years. Exercise and be active, also. Why? Well, it sets up good habits for life plus bone mass increases are most noted in these years and before age 18. (1) Talk to your kids about osteoporosis!
  • Take Vitamin D. Why? Lack of Vitamin D may put you at risk for osteoporosis-related spinal stenosis. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic cares for quite a few Nashua patients to relieve stenosis pain, but try to stay away from it!
  • Don't smoke, especially young men. Why? Men who smoke in young adulthood don't develop bone mineral density as well as non-smoking men. (3)
  • Avoid anti-depressants, if possible. Why? They add to the risk of fractures of all kinds like compression fractures often connected to osteoporosis. (4)

With a little nutrition, activity, good lifestyle choices, and some chiropractic care, osteoporosis and its repercussions may be reduced. Contact Moriarty Chiropractic to talk about your and your family's strategy for Nashua osteoporosis management and prevention.
