Baton Rouge Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D essential? It sure is! Many Baton Rouge folks are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some places in the world! Vitamin D influences a variety of bodily functions, and your Baton Rouge chiropractor treats so many of those bodily functions. Spine & Sports Rehab Center encourages Baton Rouge chiropractic patients to include vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to protect their health, enrich their health, and prevent issues that come with vitamin D deficiencies. Baton Rouge 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 decreased muscle strength, sarcopenia, functional limitation, disability as well as falls and physical function in older adults. Osteomalacia and rickets may also be caused by vitamin D deficiency. Despite blood and urine levels of calcium, using a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps increase bone mineral density and reduce the chance of vertebral fractures. (1)  88% of Indian women have vitamin D deficiency which possibly 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center appreciates its role in helping Baton Rouge back pain sufferers attain as functional a life as possible which may involve directing patients to increase 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 in addition to sarcopenia and cardiovascular decline and enriches muscle function and help bone.  (5) Osteoporotic vertebral fracture raises the risk of back pain, particularly in those who have higher pain intensity, angular instability, and past such fractures and less disposed to exercising regularly.  (6) Spine & Sports Rehab Center views these as worthy causes to correct vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
