Acupuncture and Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is considered a major threat to 55% of U.S. population over 50. Women are 4 times more likely than men to have Osteoporosis, and as many as half of all females and one quarter of all males more than 50 years old will break a bone due to osteoporosis.
Acupuncture works wonders to avoid Osteoporosis before it becomes a problem, by preventing a decrease in bone density. If Osteoporosis is already present then acupuncture helps stop the decrease in bone density and will strengthen the muscles around the bones to reduce the amount of stress and pressure on the bones. It is well known that increasing Calcium and Vitamin D will help prevent Osteoporosis, but it has been found that people who have regular acupuncture treatment along with supplementation of Calcium and Vitamin D suffer far less from injuries caused by Osteoporosis than people who do not receive acupuncture treatment.
