Vitamin D

What Can Vitamin D Do for Your Spinal Health?

Guess what? There may be a connection between your body’s vitamin D levels and your spinal health! Who would have thought?


How do we know that? A study done by researchers at Washington University in St. Louis tested 313 spinal-infusion surgery patients and found that 57% of them did not have adequate levels of the vitamin in their system. Those levels were so low that they were considered a deficiency.

Vitamin D is actually necessary to help the body create new bone, something which is necessary post-surgery.

Though spinal-infusion surgery is somewhat a special case, vitamin D is encouraged for use by any patient who may need any sort of back surgery. If you’re over 55 or you have a history of obesity, diabetes and smoking, you especially, should have your doctor check for a vitamin D deficiency.

But before you decide to consider undergoing surgery, you should consider having chiropractic treatments done. They are shown to improve many back problems for patients. Chiropractic doctors can also help you with nutritional training and help you design a diet, which will be filled with the vitamins you need for your specific condition.

Chiropractic treatment is a great way to improve your back pain condition and your nutritional health too. If you want to see a chiropractor in Stouffville to help with your back pain and body aches, then give us a call for a consultation at Stouffville Health Centre.
