Colorado Springs Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D essential? Absolutely! So many of us in Colorado Springs 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 Colorado Springs chiropractor treats so many of those bodily functions. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR encourages Colorado Springs 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. Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plans are not just developed 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 be caused by 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 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 tend to have low vitamin D levels. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR appreciates its role in helping Colorado Springs back pain sufferers achieve as functional a life as possible which may involve instructing patients to boost their 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, impeded bone metabolism, and raised bone mineral density. (4) Vitamin D protects against vertebral fracture in addition to sarcopenia and cardiovascular decline and enriches muscle function and help bone.  (5) Osteoporotic vertebral fracture raises the risk of back pain, especially in those who have higher pain intensity, angular instability, and past such fractures and less prone to exercising regularly.  (6) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees these as worthy causes to correct vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
