Osteoporosis is a prevalent problem in industrialized society. It is suggested that attempts to limit the development of this condition should constitute a routine health promotion and disease prevention measure in chiropractic clinical care. This paper reviews contemporary trends in the minimization and control of osteopenia as a means of preventing clinically detectable osteoporosis. Modes of intervention accessible to chiropractic clinicians are emphasised.
