Baton Rouge Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

November 14, 2017

Is Vitamin D essential? Absolutely! So many of us in Baton Rouge are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some places in the world! Vitamin D impacts a variety of bodily functions, and your Baton Rouge chiropractor takes care of so many of those bodily functions. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers encourages Baton Rouge chiropractic patients to include vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to safeguard their health, enhance 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.


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 and falls and physical function in older adults. Osteomalacia and rickets may also stem from15 vitamin D deficiency. In spite of blood and urine levels of calcium, using a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps boost bone mineral density and reduce the risk of vertebral fractures. (1)  88% of Indian women experience vitamin D deficiency which possibly increases 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) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers appreciates its role in helping Baton Rouge back pain sufferers achieve as functional a life as possible which may encompass directing patients to boost their vitamin D levels.


Combining vitamin D and calcium with denosumab (a drug used for osteoporosis treatment) combated the reduction in calcium caused 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 enriches muscle function and help bone.  (5) Osteoporotic vertebral fracture increases the risk of back pain, particularly in those who have higher pain intensity, angular instability, and prior such fractures and less prone to exercising routinely.  (6) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers views these as worthy causes to improve vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
