A note about Negative Effects of Osteoporosis
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
We often take for granted all the various things our bodies do for us on a daily basis, but when the body stops doing those things, all of a sudden we realize just how important good health is.
This is one condition that you can treat and prevent if you take the correct actions, so if you are currently suffering from osteoporosis, it is time to sit up and start doing something about it.
Here are some of the biggest negative effects of osteoporosis that you should know about.
Spinal Column Misalignment
The first major issue that comes when you're suffering from osteoporosis is the effects on the spinal column. While some individuals just have poor posture and find their muscles grow weaker, making it harder to maintain proper posture, in other cases the reason for the poor posture is actually because the spinal column has become so weak that they can no longer stand up straight.
Often, those who have spinal column fractures also notice that the vertebrae are not placed as they should, and that is what causes them to adopt this stooped over appearance.
Another of the common effects of osteoporosis is hip fractures. When someone suffers from a hip fracture, it is a very serious situation, because of the fact that during treatment, many people, especially those who are older in age, experience complications such as blood clots, pressure sores, as well as pneumonia.
In some instances, those who are being treated for hip fractures do become seriously ill, and the situation can even be life threatening.
Increased Bone Breaks
In addition to stress fractures, complete bone breaks are also more likely when you are suffering from osteoporosis.
Of the various negative effects of osteoporosis, this one can be quite disruptive to younger individuals who are still trying to lead an active lifestyle, because it will prevent them being able to exercise as intensely as they normally would. When they're constantly aware of the fact that they are at an increased risk for suffering from a bone break, they will subconsciously not exercise as hard because of it.
Feelings Of Pain During Exercise
Finally, the last of the negative effects of osteoporosis is the pain that is often experienced when you're suffering from the condition. Even simple activities such as walking up the stairs or going shopping for an afternoon can cause significant amounts of pain for those afflicted by the ailment, which can make life very unpleasant.
Performing bone strengthening exercise is one of the best ways to combat osteoporosis, but once you're already at a late stage of the disease, youll find that the treatment almost seems unbearable. When this is your case, it's important to attempt to perform small doses of exercise at a time in order to tolerate it better.
There are so many unpleasant side effects of osteoporosis that this is one condition that you really want to aim to do everything you can to prevent and manage.
