“We Want Calcium! We Want Calcium!”
Music to your Plymouth chiropractor’s ear!
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology’s response: “Yes, you do!”
Because calcium is an essential building block of bone and bone mass along with Vitamin D and other nutrients, it is crucial to supply your bones the nutrients they need to be strong and healthy over the length of a lifetime! Building bone mass is extremely 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. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology teaches our young patients to build a strong bone mass as teens which will allow them to lose half of it without experiencing the painful osteoporosis side effects such as fracture. Regardless of your age and/or osteoporosis stage, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 familiar disease among the elderly, especially postmenopausal women. Calcium supplementation is effective in decreasing the occurrence of osteoporosis. Your Plymouth chiropractor is trained in the administration of calcium supplementation as well as the other elements working with calcium to maximize your health response. Use Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology’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 more suitable 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”? Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 typically better absorbed than other types, but talk with us about your calcium supplement, whatever it may be. In our Plymouth chiropractic practice, we’re here for your nutritional needs and questions.
