Ashburn Chiropractic Treatment Plan Incorporates Vitamin D

Is Vitamin D important? Absolutely! So many of us in Ashburn 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 Ashburn chiropractor takes care of so many of those bodily functions. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn encourages Ashburn chiropractic patients to include vitamin D in their diet and supplementation plan to protect their health, enrich their health, and prevent issues that come with vitamin D deficiencies. Ashburn 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. Despite blood and urine levels of calcium, using a form of vitamin D (edecalcitol) helps increase bone mineral density and reduce the chance of vertebral fractures. (1)  88% of Indian women have vitamin D deficiency which possibly 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn welcomes its role in helping Ashburn back pain sufferers achieve as functional a life as possible which may encompass directing patients to increase their vitamin D levels.


Combining vitamin D and calcium with denosumab (a drug used for osteoporosis treatment) combated the decrease in calcium caused by taking denosumab, stopped bone metabolism, and raised bone mineral density. (4) Vitamin D protects against vertebral fracture as well as sarcopenia and cardiovascular decline and improves 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 disposed to exercising routinely.  (6) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn views these as valuable reasons to improve vitamin D levels as part of the nutritional plan!
