St. Francisville Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D essential? Absolutely! Many St. Francisville folks are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some areas in the world! Vitamin D influences so many bodily functions, and your St. Francisville chiropractor works with so many of those bodily functions. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville encourages St. Francisville 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. St. Francisville 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 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. In spite of blood and urine levels of calcium, using a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps boost bone mineral density and lessen the chance 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) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville embraces its role in helping St. Francisville back pain sufferers attain 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 decrease in calcium caused by taking denosumab, impeded bone metabolism, and raised bone mineral density. (4) Vitamin D protects against vertebral fracture as well as sarcopenia and cardiovascular decline and improves 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 prior such fractures and less disposed to exercising regularly.  (6) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville sees these as worthy motives to improve vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
