Pensacola Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. Fractures are costly in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center treats many Pensacola osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our Pensacola chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Pensacola chiropractor knows well that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the health of 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 new study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares a couple startling facts:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the European Union and 300,000 in the US could be avoided if every osteoporotic adult 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 huge figures! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center surely encourages 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

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is quite certain that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the form of vitamin D you take is important. Attaining and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also important for bone and general health. This is an issue for people around the world. 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 reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that require special drugs that prompt the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol well. The recommendation in this recent 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. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees this as important.
