“According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 100 million individuals worldwide are affected by osteoporosis, a neuromusculoskeletal disease that decreases bone mass, increases porosity and can weaken the structural support of the spine,” said Sherry McAllister, DC, executive vice president, F4CP, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the value of chiropractic care. “Doctors of chiropractic (DCs) – who receive a minimum of seven years of higher level education – specialize in the hands-on diagnosis and management of acute and chronic neuromusculoskeletal conditions, including osteoporosis and good bone health.”
“Stronger Bones, Longer Life” is the first national PBS special to air about bone health. Simpson will address the definition of osteoporosis, how to diagnose the disease and when to get tested. Additionally, Simpson will offer millions of viewers with optimal exercise, diet and nutrition tips to help keep their bones in tip-top shape.
