“We Want Calcium! We Want Calcium!”
Music to your Manchester chiropractor’s ear!
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries’s response: “Yes, you do!”
Because calcium is a key 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 teen years. (1) Certain bone diseases such as Osteoporosis are common among the elderly because we tend to lose half our bone mass as we age. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries teaches our young patients to build a strong bone mass as teens which will allow them to lose half of it without suffering osteoporosis side effects such as fracture. Regardless of your age and/or osteoporosis stage, Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries wants to share with you information about calcium supplementation that can help you treat as well as prevent osteoporosis and its affiliated problems.
Diet recommendations for osteoporosis prevention and treatment are valuable and demand careful implementation. Osteoporosis is a common disease among older people, especially postmenopausal women. Calcium supplementation is effective in decreasing the occurrence of osteoporosis. Your Manchester chiropractor is educated in the administration of calcium supplementation as well as the other elements working with calcium to maximize your health response. Use Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries’s osteoporosis and nutritional expertise for your treatment.
What are the different calcium sources that doctors suggest? There are a lot of 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 better than others. Calcium supplementation has some advantages over other means like milk drink and milk chews by increasing calcium in the serum. (1) A good thing!
And what about “brand”? Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries often is asked if brand x is “ok” or not. Our best reply 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 Manchester chiropractic practice, we’re here for your nutritional needs and questions.
