San Jose Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D essential? It sure is! So many of us in San Jose are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some places in the world! Vitamin D impacts a variety of bodily functions, and your San Jose chiropractor treats so many of those bodily functions. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions encourages San Jose 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. San Jose 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 decreased muscle strength, sarcopenia, functional limitation, disability and falls and physical function in older adults. Osteomalacia and rickets may also stem from15 vitamin D deficiency. Despite blood and urine levels of calcium, taking a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps boost bone mineral density and lessen the chance 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) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions appreciates its role in helping San Jose back pain sufferers realize 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 caused by taking denosumab, stopped bone metabolism, and increased bone mineral density. (4) Vitamin D protects against vertebral fracture in addition to sarcopenia and cardiovascular decline and improves 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 disposed to exercising routinely.  (6) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions sees these as worthy causes to improve vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
