Auburn Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D essential? It sure is! Many Auburn folks are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some areas in the world! Vitamin D impacts so many bodily functions, and your Auburn chiropractor works with so many of those bodily functions. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages Auburn chiropractic patients to incorporate vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to protect their health, enhance their health, and prevent issues that accompany vitamin D deficiencies. Auburn chiropractic treatment plans are not just created 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 stem from15 vitamin D deficiency. In spite of blood and urine levels of calcium, using a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps increase bone mineral density and reduce the risk of vertebral fractures. (1)  88% of Indian women have 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 tend to have low vitamin D levels. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. welcomes its role in helping Auburn back pain sufferers achieve as functional a life as possible which may encompass directing patients to boost 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 decrease in calcium instigated 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 raises the risk of back pain, especially in those who have higher pain intensity, angular instability, and past such fractures and less prone to exercising routinely.  (6) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees these as good reasons to improve vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
