Toronto Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D essential? Absolutely! So many of us in Toronto are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some areas in the world! Vitamin D impacts so many bodily functions, and your Toronto chiropractor works with so many of those bodily functions. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encourages Toronto chiropractic patients to include vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to safeguard their health, enhance their health, and prevent issues that accompany vitamin D deficiencies. Toronto 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 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. In spite of blood and urine levels of calcium, taking a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps boost bone mineral density and reduce the risk of vertebral fractures. (1)  88% of Indian women experience 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 tend to have low vitamin D levels. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre welcomes its role in helping Toronto back pain sufferers achieve as functional a life as possible which may encompass 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 decrease in calcium instigated by taking denosumab, stopped bone metabolism, and raised 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 raises the risk of back pain, particularly in those who have higher pain intensity, angular instability, and past such fractures and less prone to exercising routinely.  (6) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre sees these as good motives to improve vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
