You may know that vitamin D is an important nutrient for your general health, but it is also linked to reducing chronic pain in the body. National Pain Institute offers vitamin D testing and therapy for residents of Orlando, as well as other communities in Central and South Florida.
What Is Vitamin D Testing & Therapy?
Our vitamin-D testing and therapy services check the levels of the nutrient in your body to determine if a deficiency is contributing to your chronic pain. If you are low on vitamin D, we prescribe supplements that are available at our onsite pharmacy.
What Are the Benefits of Vitamin D Testing & Therapy?
Vitamin-D testing and therapy at National Pain institute may identify that a deficiency is worsening your chronic pain. When you start increasing the levels of vitamin D in your body, you may experience less pain and find that you can also decrease the amount of pain medication that you use on a regular basis.
Am I a Candidate for Vitamin-D Testing & Therapy?
Bloodwork will determine if you are a good candidate for our vitamin D testing and therapy services, and our patients can have the lab work done at our onsite pharmacy.
How Is Vitamin D Testing & Therapy Performed?
The phlebotomist draws a small amount of your blood into a vial and sends it to our lab for processing. The results typically take less than 24 hours. If you do have a deficiency, we will prescribe a vitamin D supplement.
What Should I Expect From Vitamin D Testing & Therapy?
Improving the vitamin D levels in your body will take some time, especially if you have a significant deficiency of the nutrient. In addition to the supplements, we may recommend that you work with a registered dietician to find out how you can use food to maintain a healthy vitamin D level and give your body key nutrients it needs to heal from your pain condition.
