A Natural Approach to Building Healthy Bones

As we age, our bodies sometimes seem like they can’t keep up. Joints begin to hurt, skin begins to wrinkle, and bones become brittle. Most of us are interested in keeping our bodies in the best shape possible as we age so that we can enjoy our families and maintain a high quality of life. While the market is flooded with solutions for wrinkles and even joint pain, there is a little less information out there about how to strengthen your bones. To keep your bones strong and healthy, check out these natural approaches to optimal bone health.

Consume Calcium

A great practice for those wanting to improve or maintain bone health is to eat or consume plenty of calcium. Our bones are a large part calcium, so getting enough is vital to keeping them strong. To eat more calcium, drink whole milk, eat cheese, and consume leafy greens like spinach and kale. If you are not keen on any of these foods, it is also possible to get a healthy amount of calcium through a supplement found in most supermarkets or grocery stores.

Strengthen the Muscles

Your bones hold you up. They help keep your shape and hold you in an upright position. Hand in hand with the bones, however, are the muscles. The muscles also help to hold you up and keep you upright. If you want to take some stress off of the bones, go ahead and strengthen those muscles. When the muscles can take a bit more of the load, the bones don’t have to take quite as much stress. Great muscle strengthening exercises include lifting weights and performing calisthenics like push-ups, lunges, and bodyweight squats.

Regular Chiropractic Care

Getting regular chiropractic care can make sure that the bones stay in their proper alignment. When our bones, especially the bones along the spine, get out of alignment, a whole host of negative symptoms can occur. Pain, stiffness, immobility, and tension can all result from a misaligned spine. With regular chiropractic care, these misalignments may be put back into place and then kept in place to prevent further problems from arising in the future.

While you can take calcium and strengthen the muscles in the comfort of your own home, chiropractic care may not be quite so easy. What’s the next best thing? Get to The Joint...the Chiropractic Place. While it is not your home, The Joint offers walk in appointments to make the process as painless and patient friendly as possible.
