Watertown Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D essential? You bet it is! So many of us in Watertown 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 Watertown chiropractor treats so many of those bodily functions. Watertown Wellness Center encourages Watertown chiropractic patients to include vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to safeguard their health, enhance their health, and prevent issues that accompany vitamin D deficiencies. Watertown 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 stem from15 vitamin D deficiency. In spite of blood and urine levels of calcium, taking a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps amplify bone mineral density and lessen 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) Watertown Wellness Center welcomes its role in helping Watertown back pain sufferers attain 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 produced by taking denosumab, impeded bone metabolism, and raised 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) Watertown Wellness Center sees these as valuable causes to correct vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
