Southern New Hampshire Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

November 14, 2017

Is Vitamin D essential? Absolutely! So many of us in Southern New Hampshire are deficient in vitamin D, as many as 80% or more in some places in the world! Vitamin D influences so many bodily functions, and your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor treats so many of those bodily functions. New Hampshire Spine and Sport encourages Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients to include vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to protect their health, enhance their health, and prevent issues that accompany vitamin D deficiencies. Southern New Hampshire chiropractic treatment plans are not just created for back pain relief but also wellness lifestyle.


Vitamin D deficiencies may well precede issues like weakened mineralization and even myopathy. Low levels of vitamin D result in reduced 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 lessen the chance of vertebral fractures. (1)  88% of Indian women have vitamin D deficiency which potentially 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 tend to have low vitamin D levels. (3) New Hampshire Spine and Sport welcomes its role in helping Southern New Hampshire back pain sufferers attain as functional a life as possible which may encompass instructing patients to boost their 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 increased bone mineral density. (4) Vitamin D protects against vertebral fracture as well as 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 routinely.  (6) New Hampshire Spine and Sport sees these as valuable causes to correct vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
