Spine fractures are one of the most common complications of osteoporosis. The breaks are in the form of micro-cracks that with time become larger and more noticeable, creating a chronic pain that intensifies. Two-thirds of those with spinal fractures do not even know that they have them.

Pain, reduced mobility, and deformity are just beginnings that are mistaken for muscle inflammation or aging, which makes the diagnosis more difficult.

Back Pain Causes

Under the influence of weight, harmless falls, and even minimal movements such as sneezing and laughing, micro-cracks are formed on spinal vertebrae. Over time, these cracks are growing, so the vertebra cannot withstand the burden of the spine. That’s why it cracks. Then out of nowhere a severe pain occurs that eventually becomes chronic pain.

It is important to note that if you do not respond in time, the compressive fractures of the spine can complicate. They can create breathing problems, and neurological problems such as tingling, spasms, impaired motor and sensory function.

How To Prevent And Treat This Condition

The best way to prevent the micro-cracks of the spinal cord is to strengthen the bones and keep the osteoporosis under control. Calcium, which we bring in our body with nutrition, gives strength and makes your bones resistant to fractures. But, this is impossible if there is not enough vitamin D3. Therefore, additional intake of vitamin D3 is required, which will increase the absorption of calcium from our intestines.

For a long time, vitamin D3 was considered to be sufficient to prevent osteoporosis and fractures. However, the latest research says the opposite. Namely, in order to direct and incorporate the calcium into the bones, vitamin K2 is necessary. In the absence of vitamin K2, calcium is not implanted in the bone. It is deposited in soft tissues such as cartilage of the joints. The consequences of this are: the bones become porous and are more easily broken, and the joints become painful and prone to decay.

Vitamin K2 and D3 are a powerful combination for the prevention of osteoporosis and the risk of spinal fractures. These two nutrients are like pieces of the puzzle. They have a synergistic effect and achieve a maximum effect when taken together. Thus, using vitamins K2 and D3, with sufficient amounts of calcium reach into the blood and are properly directed, helping the spine to become and remain solid and fracture-resistant.
