Ashburn Chiropractic Osteoporosis Help: Calcium Supplement

We want calcium!“We Want Calcium! We Want Calcium!”
Music to your Ashburn chiropractor’s ear!
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn’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 imperative to supply your bones the nutrients they need to be strong and healthy over the length of a lifetime! Building bone mass is very 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 due to the fact that we tend to lose half our bone mass as we age. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn wants to share with you information about calcium supplementation that can help you treat as well as prevent osteoporosis and its affiliated problems.

Diet suggestions for osteoporosis prevention and treatment are valuable and demand careful implementation. Osteoporosis is a familiar disease among older people, especially postmenopausal women. Calcium supplementation is useful in decreasing the occurrence of osteoporosis.  Your Ashburn chiropractor is trained in the administration of calcium supplementation as well as the other elements working with calcium to maximize your health response. Use Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn’s osteoporosis and nutritional expertise for your treatment.

What are the different calcium sources that doctors prescribe?  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”? Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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 Ashburn chiropractic practice, we’re here for your nutritional needs and questions.
