Osteoporosis Screening Tool

Osteoporosis Screening Tool

Normal bone’s co-mposed of protein – co-llagen – & calcium all of _WHICH_ give bone its strength. Bones -’re affected by osteoporosis may break (fracture) with relatively minor injury – normally would _NOT_ cause bone fracture. The fracture may be either in form of cracking (as in hip fracture) – / co-llapsing (as in co-mpression fracture of vertebrae of spine). The spine – hips – & wrists’re co-mmon areas of bone fractures from osteoporosis – although osteoporosis-related fractures may also occur in almost any skeletal bone.

The osteoporosis co-ndition may be pre-sent without any symptoms for de-cades – because osteoporosis doesn’t cause symptoms unless bone fractures. Some osteoporosis fractures may escape de-tection until years later.

A fracture – occurs during co-urse of normal activity’s called Minimal Trauma Fracture / Stress Fracture. Hip fractures typically occur as result of fall. With osteoporosis – hip fractures may occur as result of trivial accidents.

Osteoporosis bone fractures’re responsible for co-nsiderable pain – de-creased quality of life – lost workdays – & dis-ability. Estrogen’s important in maintaining bone de-nsity in women. When estrogen levels drop after menopause – bone loss accelerates. Accelerated bone loss after menopause’s major cause of osteoporosis in women.

*Factors – shall increase risk of de-veloping Osteoporosis are: *

Female gender; Caucasian / Asian race; Thin & small body frames; Family history of osteoporosis; Cigarette smoking; Excessive alcohol co-nsumption; Lack of exercise; Diet low in calcium; Poor nutrition & poor general health; Mal absorption; Low estrogen levels (such as occur in menopause / with early surgical removal of both ovaries); Chemotherapy may cause early menopause due to its toxic effects on ovaries; Amenorrhea (loss of menstrual period) in young women also causes low estrogen & osteoporosis; Chronic inflammation – due to dis-eases (such as rheumatoid arthritis & chronic liver dis-eases); Immobility; Hyperthyroidism; Hyper parathyroidism

*A routine x-ray may reveal osteoporosis of bone* – _WHICH_ appears much thinner & lighter than normal bones. Unfortunately – by time x-rays may de-tect osteoporosis – @ least 30% of bone has already been lost. In addition – x-rays’re _NOT_ accurate indicators of bone de-nsity. *Bone Densitometry may give accurate results for diagnosis of Osteoporosis.*

*From Ayurvedic perspective* any Vata imbalance / dis-ease pattern in body’s indicated by in 1 of symptoms such as stress – anxiety – co-nstipation – dry skin – hypertension – restlessness – insomnia – PMS / lots of menstrual dis-orders – Irritable bowl syndrome & Inability to relax etc.

Some of behavioural patterns – may create Vata imbalance in body are: being in stress / reacting to stress with anxiety; physical exhaustion; mental strain & overwork without giving body chance to relax & recreate; addictive patterns; lack of sleep; suffering emotionally from grief – fear / shock; travelling (flying / long car journeys); stringent diets; eating co-ld – raw / dry foods frequently; living in co-ld – dry & windy weather.

Osteoporosis’s 1 of natural processes – occur with age – however – Vata body type individuals / people in Vata stage of life – ‘re likely to experience loss of bone de-nsity @ higher rate. Consequently risk for osteoporosis shall be higher in person of Vata body – old people & women after menopausal age. For women – regular menstrual cycle’s important for building & maintaining bone strength throughout woman’s reproductive years.

*Ayurveda also focuses on balancing doshas – especially Vata – & dhatus’re free of ama – then body’s homeostatic mechanisms shall more efficiently help our metabolism adjust to natural aging process.* When body’s natural healing ability’s strengthened – & root imbalances in basic bodily functions’re removed – bone rebuilding process shall be positively influenced.Ayurveda recommends on:

*”Rasayana Therapy” – * involves co-rrecting Imbalance – Diet rich in phyto-oestrogens – Calcium etc & Researched Internal Medications & Internal Detoxification to eliminate Toxins in system. For this Ayurveda Panchakarma & Rejuvenation Procedures’re carried out:
