Ottawa Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D essential? It sure is! So many of us in Ottawa 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 Ottawa chiropractor takes care of so many of those bodily functions. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider encourages Ottawa chiropractic patients to incorporate vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to protect their health, enrich their health, and prevent issues that accompany vitamin D deficiencies. Ottawa 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 be caused by vitamin D deficiency. Despite blood and urine levels of calcium, using a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps boost bone mineral density and decrease the chance 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider appreciates its role in helping Ottawa back pain sufferers realize as functional a life as possible which may involve 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 reduction 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 enhances muscle function and help bone.  (5) Osteoporotic vertebral fracture increases the risk of back pain, particularly in those who have higher pain intensity, angular instability, and prior such fractures and less prone to exercising regularly.  (6) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider views these as worthy reasons to correct vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
