“We Want Calcium! We Want Calcium!”
Music to your Baton Rouge chiropractor’s ear!
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation’s response: “Yes, you do!”
Because calcium is an essential building block of bone and bone mass along with Vitamin D and other nutrients, it is crucial to feed your bones the nutrients they need to be strong and healthy over the course of a lifetime! Building bone mass is extremely important and must start while we are young, particularly in the growing adolescent years. (1) Certain bone diseases such as Osteoporosis are common among the elderly due to the fact that we tend to lose half our bone mass as we age. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation encourages our young patients to build a strong bone mass as teens which will allow them to lose half of it without experiencing the painful osteoporosis side effects such as fracture. Regardless of your age and/or osteoporosis stage, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation wants to provide you with information about calcium supplementation that can help you treat as well as prevent osteoporosis and its related problems.
Diet recommendations for osteoporosis prevention and treatment are valuable and demand careful implementation. Osteoporosis is a common disease among the elderly, especially postmenopausal women. Calcium supplementation is effective in decreasing the occurrence of osteoporosis. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor is educated in the administration of calcium supplementation as well as the other elements working with calcium to maximize your health response. Use Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation’s osteoporosis and nutritional expertise for your treatment.
What are the various calcium sources that doctors recommend? There are many different calcium sources out there which include: milk, chews, and supplements. We want you to get calcium in any way you can, however, some sources are more suitable than others. Calcium supplementation has some advantages over other means like milk drink and milk chews by elevating calcium in the serum. (1) A good thing!
And what about “brand”? Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation often is asked if brand x is “ok” or not. Our best answer suggestion is to have you check the type of calcium. Calcium citrate is generally better absorbed than other types, but talk with us about your calcium supplement, whatever it may be. In our Baton Rouge chiropractic practice, we’re here for your nutritional needs and questions.
