Paramus Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. 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. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center treats many Paramus osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Paramus chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Paramus chiropractor is quite aware 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 recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals a couple startling statistics:

(A) more than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the US could be prevented 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 enormous figures! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center surely 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

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is quite confident that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving 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 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 need special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully. The recommendation in this recent research paper is to use oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a higher rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees this as important.
