Effect Of Calcium Consumption When Joints Are Naturally Destroyed And Fractured?
, a month ago around April 15 2018 I had an accident, and the finger of my right hand bone was out of whack. The doctor said the joint was crushed and the bone had an open fracture. And as a result I installed an iron wire called wire. And currently my arm is healed but it’s hard to move. Will continuing to consume calcium return to normal?
Hello, thank you for your question.
Basically, bones need two key nutrients essential for bone growth, namely calcium and vitamin D. Calcium acts as a support for bone and tooth structure, while vitamin D will maximize calcium absorption and also support bone growth. Calcium intake for adults up to 50 years of age is 1,000 milligrams per day, while vitamin D is needed around 200 IU. After the age of 50 years, the intake should be increased to 1,200 milligrams of calcium and 400-600 IU of vitamin D per day.
In broken bones, calcium is needed for bone grafting and vitamin D for calcium absorption. Doctors generally will prescribe this supplement to help heal a broken bone. Patients who took calcium and vitamin D supplements had better bone density in fractured bones than those who did not take the supplements.
Regarding your fingers that are still difficult to move, you can confirm the cause of this condition by seeing a doctor directly. This may be due to stiff joints or the wire. Taking calcium supplements alone cannot treat joint stiffness. Generally, in patients with fractures, it is recommended to do certain exercises so as not to experience joint stiffness. These exercises can also restore flexibility in your joints.
