Eugene Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D important? You bet it is! So many of us in Eugene are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some places in the world! Vitamin D influences so many bodily functions, and your Eugene chiropractor works with so many of those bodily functions. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic encourages Eugene chiropractic patients to include vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to safeguard their health, enrich their health, and prevent issues that come with vitamin D deficiencies. Eugene chiropractic treatment plans are not just developed for back pain relief but also wellness lifestyle.

THE IMPACT OF VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY

Vitamin D deficiencies may well lead to 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. Despite blood and urine levels of calcium, using a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps increase bone mineral density and lessen the risk of vertebral fractures. (1)  88% of Indian women experience 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 tend to have low vitamin D levels. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic embraces its role in helping Eugene back pain sufferers attain as functional a life as possible which may include 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 raised 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, particularly in those who have higher pain intensity, angular instability, and prior such fractures and less disposed to exercising regularly.  (6) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic views these as worthy causes to correct vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
