Chronic Pain

This week I spoke to doctors and nurses who run Pain Clinics.  The obvious connection is Vertebral Fractures requiring Kyphoplasty or Vertebroplasty.  If you only do the procedure, you have not solved the problem.  You must treat the Osteoporosis too, preferably with the Anabolic, Forteo, if you want to avoid further fractures.

Vitamin D is the other connection.  Successful treatment of chronic pain often requires enough Vitamin D3 to bring the 25-hydroxy Vitamin D level to at least 40ng/ml.  This is not yet widely known.  Not all clinics are testing for Vitamin D levels.  They should be!

You need Vitamin D in order to absorb Calcium from your diet.  Without enough vitamin D your body will steal Calcium from your bones, not add Calcium to your bones.  Low Vitamin D is tthe most common cause of Osteoporosis.  But vitamin D is needed for much more than just your bones.
