Oxford Chiropractic Osteoporosis Help: Calcium Supplement

We want calcium!“We Want Calcium! We Want Calcium!”
Music to your Oxford chiropractor’s ear!
Satterwhite Chiropractic’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 imperative to supply your bones the nutrients necessary to be robust and healthy over the length of a lifetime! Building bone mass is very important and must begin while we are young, particularly in the growing adolescent years. (1) Certain bone diseases such as Osteoporosis are common among the elderly because we are more likely to lose half our bone mass as we age. Satterwhite Chiropractic encourages 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, Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 useful in decreasing the occurrence of osteoporosis.  Your Oxford chiropractor is trained in the administration of calcium supplementation as well as the other elements working with calcium to maximize your health response. Use Satterwhite Chiropractic’s osteoporosis and nutritional expertise for your treatment.

What are the various calcium sources that doctors suggest?  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 better 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”? Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 typically better absorbed than other types, but talk with us about your calcium supplement, whatever it may be. In our Oxford chiropractic practice, we’re here for your nutritional needs and questions.
