Largo Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D important? Absolutely! So many of us in Largo are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some places in the world! Vitamin D impacts so many bodily functions, and your Largo chiropractor treats so many of those bodily functions. Hollstrom & Associates Inc encourages Largo chiropractic patients to incorporate vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to protect their health, enhance their health, and prevent issues that come with vitamin D deficiencies. Largo 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 lead to 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, taking a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps boost 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 are inclined to have have low vitamin D levels. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc welcomes its role in helping Largo back pain sufferers realize as functional a life as possible which may include instructing 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 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 increases the risk of back pain, especially in those who have higher pain intensity, angular instability, and past such fractures and less prone to exercising regularly.  (6) Hollstrom & Associates Inc views these as good reasons to improve vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
