Carrolltown Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are no fun. Fractures are painful. Fractures slow you down. Fractures are pricey in not only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who have osteoporosis. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation treats many Carrolltown osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Carrolltown chiropractic patients strong and fit.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Carrolltown chiropractor is quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening ideally should start in the teen years, but supplementing at any age is beneficial. A recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals a some startling facts:

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

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

Those are some big numbers! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation certainly encourages backing this effort to save money and, more significantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is very confident that if you are going to make the effort to supplement with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That’s where the type of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and maintaining 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 hindered in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that require special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully. The recommendation in this new research paper is to take oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a higher rate of intestinal absorption.
