Baton Rouge Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. Fractures are costly in not only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be averted? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who have osteoporosis. Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees many Baton Rouge osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients strong and healthy.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Baton Rouge chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably should begin in the teen years, but supplementing at any age is beneficial. A new study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists a couple amazing facts:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be avoided if every osteoporotic adult in the EU and US used calcium and vitamin D and

(B) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US. (1)

Those are some enormous figures! Spine & Sports Rehab Center surely urges support of this effort to save money and, more importantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Spine & Sports Rehab Center is very confident that if you are making the effort to supplement with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also important for bone and general health. This is a problem for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be delayed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that require special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well. The recommendation in this new research paper is to use oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center recognizes the importance of good absorption.
