Osteoporosis and Chiropractory

Hi Everyone,

I have osteoporosis and am wondering about the safety of chiropractic
treatments. I have been seeing a chiropractor for years. She does what
is called light touch, no aggressive cracking, more of a light manipulation.
Has anyone ever heard of any reports in regard to osteo patients in regard to chiropractory? I have not and when I ask her she says it's no problem but
I can't seem to settle my mind about this.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Thanks!
Jodianne

Re: Osteoporosis and Chiropractory

Hi,
I've never been to the Chiropractor but I do get regular massages (nothing agreesive) and then also go to PT where they have made gentle adjustments to my S1 joint to level out my hips. I always remind the massage therapists and PT not to bang on my body or go real deep into my back and hips or stretch me beyond a comfortable range of motions.

It seems as though if the chiropractor doesn't put alot of pressure on your hip/spine during treatments that it might be fine to continue. Do the adjustments relieve your pain? Does the Chiropractor know you have osteo?

Maybe someone who goes to a Chiropractor will post some information.

Re: Osteoporosis and Chiropractory

Thanks so much Taape for replying, as you can see I have not gotten any other
responses. As I mentioned the doc I go to does do the light touch manipulation and
she does know I have osteo. Sometimes in the upper spine she will give a gentle
push, but for the lower spine and hip she just does light hand manipulations and
uses a drop table which is gentle also. She is the only one in the area that I know
of that does this type of chiropractory so I'm hoping it's ok. Just wondered if there
were others on the board who have osteo and do chiropractics.

And yes she is a big help to me when I "throw my back or neck out". Accupuncture
is a big help too, but it is sooooo expensive.

Thanks again for responding.

Re: Osteoporosis and Chiropractory

your welcome,not sure why more people aren't posting but when I tried to respond again today for some reason I was dumped out of the system and had to re register. Maybe that's why, because it's a real hassle.
