Vitamin D is a key nutrient for your body, and low levels may contribute to chronic pain conditions . Texas Pain Institute offers vitamin D testing and therapy for residents of Fort Worth, Denton, Southlake, and the nearby areas of Texas.
What is Vitamin D Testing and Therapy?
Our vitamin D testing and therapy services ensure that a nutritional deficiency is not contributing to your chronic pain. Low vitamin D is known to worsen hip pain, back pain, and leg pain. Research has shown that individuals with certain pain conditions and low vitamin D levels tend to rely on prescription medications more compared to patients with healthy vitamin D levels.
What Are the Benefits of Vitamin D Testing and Therapy?
If you have low vitamin D levels, we will prescribe a supplement to bring the levels into the healthy range. You may find that you need lower doses of pain medications while you are taking the supplements.
Am I a Candidate for Vitamin D Testing and Therapy?
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for vitamin D testing and therapy is to have bloodwork done to check your levels. We can submit the labs to our onsite lab. As soon as we have the results, we can prescribe vitamin D supplements through our pharmacy.
How is Vitamin D Testing and Therapy Performed?
Testing your vitamin D levels is done through a blood test. We will send you to our lab, where the sample is drawn and checked for vitamin D in your bloodstream. We can discuss the test during your consultation to help you decide if it is right for you.
What is the Recovery Like After Vitamin D Testing and Therapy?
Vitamin D testing and therapy does not require any type of recovery. You may feel some changes to your body when you first start to take the supplements. You should continue to take vitamin D for at least one month, and we will recheck your levels.
What is the Prognosis After Vitamin D Testing and Therapy?
Improving the amount of vitamin D in your body has excellent benefits to your overall health. We speak with patients on a regular basis who note that they feel significantly better after their vitamin D testing and therapy services at Texas Pain Institute.
