Does Vitamin D deficiency have a role to play in back pain?

Posted Sep 16 2007 12:00am
I came across this letter in the BMJ today, its not a new one but I dont know if you have seen it?

It mentions that the management of chronic low back pain is challenging and that the importance of Vitamin D is not widely appreciated. It cites several studies/reports which seem to demonstrate the importance of Vitamin D and that Vitamin D deficiency ought to be considered in patients with low back pain.

Its only a short read just thought you might find it interesting. See what you think...

After the summer we had in UK this year I am feeling in need of some sunshine and Vit D!!
