Osteoporosis
« on: September 16, 2007, 04:53:47 AM »
Hi Steve,

I have just been diagnosed with osteoporosis in the lumbar spine.  Two years ago, I was diagnosed with a slipped disk in the L4 L5, and I have been seeing one of your SLM practitioners who has been a big help. 

Is SLM safe for my osteoporosis considering that it is also in the lumbar spine where I have a herniated disk.  Is there any particular technique with SLM that needs to be used.

Thank you for your kind advice.

Clarinda

Clarinda,
The SLM treatment should be focusing on the muscles so tell the therapists not to apply any compressions that will put pressure on the bones. Hopefully you can treat this with some good supplements and weight bearing exercise and get stronger but I wouldn't be taking any chances and that is why I would say no pressure on the bones and you should be fine.

Regards
Steve

# abnormal loss of bony tissue resulting in fragile porous bones attributable to a lack of calcium; most common in postmenopausal women

# Osteoporosis is a disease of bone that leads to an increased risk of fracture. In osteoporosis the bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced, bone microarchitecture is disrupted, and the amount and variety of proteins in bone is altered. ...

# A disease, occurring especially in women following menopause, in which the bones become extremely porous and are subject to fracture

The vibration therapy has been proven to be very effective for any bone density problems as well and  it is a very easy form of exercise to do each day.

I am coming up on 65 and have had a good amount of back issues myself.  I am no Dr but the only advice I can give you is do all you can to take care of your condition.  The worse it gets, the harder life is as you've likely experienced.  It is a good sign you are seeking out multiple opinions.
