Malverne Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D important? You bet it is! So many of us in Malverne 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 Malverne chiropractor works with so many of those bodily functions. Malverne Health & Wellness encourages Malverne chiropractic patients to incorporate vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to safeguard their health, enrich their health, and prevent issues that come with vitamin D deficiencies. Malverne 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 result from vitamin D deficiency. In spite of blood and urine levels of calcium, taking a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps increase bone mineral density and decrease the risk of vertebral fractures. (1)  88% of Indian women have vitamin D deficiency which potentially 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 are inclined to have have low vitamin D levels. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness appreciates its role in helping Malverne back pain sufferers achieve as functional a life as possible which may include instructing patients to improve 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 caused by taking denosumab, stopped 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 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) Malverne Health & Wellness views these as worthy causes to correct vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
