Listen Up, Sandy Springs Osteoporotic MEN! (Yes, Men!) | Cross Chiropractic Center

Poor men! You get ignored when it comes to osteoporosis. You may have a three times less chance of having osteoporosis than women, but you do get osteoporosis. In fact, men often suffer more with resulting osteoporotic fractures than women. So, men, Cross Chiropractic Center is here to take care of you. Your Sandy Springs chiropractor will check on your osteoporosis risk factors and care for you if you have signs of osteoporosis. We don’t want you to suffer with osteoporotic fractures unnecessarily!

Overlooked

Men are often overlooked when it comes to osteoporosis risk as well as osteoporosis related quality of life factors. 38% of men (as opposed to 45% of women) who get hip or other major fractures likely experienced other minor fractures beforehand. Plus, the risk of fractures – minor and severe - increases with age. This fact calls on physicians like your Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center to offer careful osteoporosis management to reduce the risk as much as possible. (1)

Quality of Life

Specific health related quality of life (HRQOL) characteristics of male patients with osteoporosis can often be overlooked. Clinicians like your Sandy Springs chiropractor are recommended to consider mental health referral especially for osteoporotic male patients having experienced two or more fractures. Osteoporotic men have more pain in activities of daily living and experience a lower quality of life. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center doesn’t want that. We want our osteoporotic men to enjoy their lives to the fullest…and they can!

Nutrition

Cross Chiropractic Center will offer you some nutritional options to contend with your osteoporosis, likely Vitamin D, calcium citrate and others.

Exercise

Osteoporotic men benefit from keeping their muscles strong and active. Cross Chiropractic Center has some simple exercises to start with if you haven’t been very active lately. We would be pleased to evaluate your current exercise routine to be sure it’s adequate (and not too strenuous either!) for osteoporosis prevention.

Treatment

Cross Chiropractic Center’s chiropractic treatment is gentle and safe. With or without osteoporosis risk or fracture, you will feel great after your Sandy Springs chiropractor adjusts your spine with Cox Technic. You’ll probably comment like so many of our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients do, “Thanks! I felt like I just needed to be pulled apart!” We do that safely, gently and effectively.You will feel better in no time.

So, men, don’t look at your Sandy Springs chiropractic physician funny when the topic of osteoporosis comes up. Cross Chiropractic Center will monitor your osteoporosis risk factors and work to keep you fracture free…and make sure you get the care you need should you suffer an osteoporotic fracture.
