Washington: Higher intake of vitamin D in winters can help people get rid of extra soreness and aches in their backs, say researchers.The study showed that patients with chronic back pain usually had inadequate levels of vitamin D and when sufficient vitamin D supplementation was provided, the pain either vanished or was at least helped to a significant extent.
However, it is always wise to check with a healthcare professional before starting a new dietary supplement.In conclusion, Leavitt stresses that vitamin D should not be viewed as a cure for all back pain conditions, and it is not necessarily a replacement for other pain-relief treatments. "While further research would be helpful," he said, "extra vitamin D should be considered for all persons during winter months, and especially for those who have back aches and pains." ANI
