    “Who can say that therapy after surgery is an enjoyable experience? But I just love it.”

    Though sessions are challenging, Father William Kurz was pleasantly surprised by how much he liked his physical therapy treatment following hip surgery. He was thrilled by how quickly he made progress as his therapists helped him begin to walk again.

    “One week after the surgery, she [the therapist] had me using the cane already. I think that’s almost unheard of,” said Kurz. Two weeks after surgery, Father Kurz was able to walk nearly unaided.

    they are both the same by the end of the article And I agree that they are both neeedd about the same. Its true that calucim is really good for bones, but if you're sedentery then its not gonna help you a whole lot.But if you get your calucim and vitamins from healthy foods, and you get your cardio weight training- esp. weight training as you get older- then you're going to be pretty well off. And its not just to fight osteoperosis, look at how a healthy diet and exercise helps lots of other health issues.
