A terrific combo! Augusta chiropractic + Osteoporosis + Calcium.

Let’s start with osteoporosis. What a disease! It causes dis-ease for its sufferers. It puts the sufferers at risk for fractures. It causes brittle bones. It affects so many women (and men!) here in Augusta and everywhere. Sadly, by the time osteoporosis symptoms appear, it’s later in the disease process. You needed to take your calcium and vitamin D when you were younger. But take heart! Augusta chiropractic care can help manage its symptoms with a mix of nutrition, exercise and treatment. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is ready to be your osteoporosis manager!

Calcium is important for those with osteoporosis.For starters, Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic has the gentlest chiropractic treatment to carefully treat the spine and keep it mobile, flexible and as pain-free as possible. Our Cox Technic spinal manipulation relaxes and relieves!  But we don’t stop there. Helping take care of yourself is vital. We’ll talk with you about protective actions you can take to shield your bones from damage like exercise to keep you well balanced (to avoid any falls and!) and strong and nutrition to keep your bones strong.

The latest in nutrition for osteoporosis is an article on calcium. A study of over 9000 people over the age of 20 years reports on osteoporosis incidence. The researchers found that the risk for osteoporosis dropped significantly as the calcium intake increased, the calcium/phosphorous ratio increased, and the vitamin D level increased. (1) So what is the main thing? Up your calcium, milk and dairy intake – Supplements are great, too. – and vitamin D. A supplement with both may help the cause greatly!

So contact Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic and bring your osteoporosis to the clinic. A treatment and management plan just for you will help you rest easy and keep your dis-ease at bay.
