I would be interested to hear how others manage the digestive problems which arise as a result of internal organs being 'squashed' by the height reductions which can occur with spinal fractures.
Eating small meals is not a problem, I was always a 'grazer' rather than a big meal eater, and I do try to avoid foods which have a tendency to result in indegestion etc but I feel that it would be useful to share the experience of others in a similar situation.
I find that my pilates exercises also assist in 'stretching out' the available midriff space (as well as seriously helping to build up those essentil core muscles), and the regular walking and general activity assist the general digestive functions. But i still experience some unpleasant symptoms from time to time and would appreciate suggestions of strategies that have worked for others.
I am sure that I am not alone in experiencing these aspects of osteoporosis and any advice or suggestions could help others too.
