Vancouver Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D essential? It sure is! Many Vancouver folks are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some areas in the world! Vitamin D influences a variety of bodily functions, and your Vancouver chiropractor treats so many of those bodily functions. Vancouver Disc Centers encourages Vancouver chiropractic patients to include vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to protect their health, enhance their health, and prevent issues that accompany vitamin D deficiencies. Vancouver chiropractic treatment plans are not just devised for back pain relief but also wellness lifestyle.

THE IMPACT OF VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY

Vitamin D deficiencies may well precede issues like weakened mineralization and even myopathy. Low levels of vitamin D result in reduced muscle strength, sarcopenia, functional limitation, disability as well as falls and physical function in older adults. Osteomalacia and rickets may also result from vitamin D deficiency. Despite blood and urine levels of calcium, taking a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps amplify bone mineral density and decrease the risk of vertebral fractures. (1)  88% of Indian women have vitamin D deficiency which potentially raises the risk of development of osteoporosis and pregnancy-related complications in the future. (2) Children with scoliosis of mean age of 13.6 years before corrective spinal surgery are inclined to have have low vitamin D levels. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers welcomes its role in helping Vancouver back pain sufferers realize as functional a life as possible which may include directing patients to improve their vitamin D levels.

PROTECT AND ENHANCE HEALTH WITH IMPROVED VITAMIN D LEVELS

Combining vitamin D and calcium with denosumab (a drug used for osteoporosis treatment) combated the reduction in calcium produced by taking denosumab, impeded bone metabolism, and increased bone mineral density. (4) Vitamin D protects against vertebral fracture as well as sarcopenia and cardiovascular decline and enhances muscle function and help bone.  (5) Osteoporotic vertebral fracture increases the risk of back pain, especially in those who have higher pain intensity, angular instability, and past such fractures and less prone to exercising regularly.  (6) Vancouver Disc Centers views these as valuable causes to correct vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
