A tremendous combo! Baton Rouge chiropractic + Osteoporosis + Calcium.

Let’s kick it off with osteoporosis. What a disease! It causes dis-ease for its sufferers. It exposes the sufferers to fractures. It causes brittle bones. It affects so many women (and men!) here in Baton Rouge and everywhere. On the down side, by the time osteoporosis symptoms appear, it’s later in the disease process. You needed to take your calcium and vitamin D when you were younger. But take heart! Baton Rouge chiropractic care can help manage its symptoms with a mix of nutrition, exercise and treatment. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is ready to be your osteoporosis manager!

We’ll talk with you about protective actions you can take to shield your bones from damage like exercise to keep you well balanced (to avoid any falls and!) and strong and nutrition to keep your bones strong.

The latest in nutrition for osteoporosis is an article on calcium. A study of over 9000 people over the age of 20 years reports on osteoporosis incidence. The researchers found that the risk for osteoporosis dropped significantly as the calcium intake increased, the calcium/phosphorous ratio increased, and the vitamin D level increased. (1) So what is the main thing? Up your calcium, milk and dairy intake – Supplements are great, too. – and vitamin D. A supplement with both may help the cause greatly!
