Vitamin D Offers Chronic Pain Relief

Vitamin D offers chronic pain relief

Researchers from the University of Adelaide have been studying the treatment of patients with chronic non-specific musculoskeletal pain.

Vitamin D supplements are known to help ease the symptoms of people with this type of chronic pain, and there are no known negative side-effects. Vitamin D supplementation is readily available and a relatively cheap option.

Vitamin D deficiency is an issue because many people are working indoors, out of the sun, and spending much of their non-working hours indoors. A little bit of sun is healthy, and doctors are encouraging their patients to go outside a bit more each day.

Adding vitamin D to your diet, in addition to receiving regular chiropractic care, may help to reduce symptoms of chronic pain.
