Effect of vestibular stimulation on depression, anxiety and stress in postmenopausal women with Osteoporesis
Osteoporosis is characterized by low bone mass with micro architectural deterioration of bone tissue leading to enhanced bone fragility. This increases the susceptibility to fracture. Osteoporosis is a silent disease, reflected only in a low bone density, till a fracture occurs. The present study was undertaken to observe effect of vestibular stimulation on pain levels in postmenopausal women with Osteoporesis. Postmenopausal women with diagnosed Osteoporesis for past 5 years were recruited for the study after written informed consent by convenient sampling. We have observed positive impact of vestibular stimulation on depression, anxiety and stress in patients with osteoporosis. We recommend further detailed studies in this area to support vestibular stimulation as a supplementary therapy in management of osteoporosis.
