Objective: To investigate the relationship between serum vitamin D concentration and lumbar disc degeneration (LDD) in postmenopausal women and the epidemiologic factors affecting low back pain (LBP). Methods: Between July 2017 and December 2018, 232 participants were retrospectively enrolled. Serum concentrations of bone turnover markers were measured using electrochemiluminescence assays. Disc degeneration was evaluated using the Pfirrmann grading system. Other variables were assessed using relevant questionnaires. Results: The mean age of the women was 65.6 ± 10.1 and their serum 25(OH)D concentration...

This study aimed to investigate the association between 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) level and Low back pain (LBP) among adolescents while adjusting for potential confounders pertinent to this age group including the weight of school bags, body mass index and physical activity. A cross-sectional study was conducted on randomly selected 760 adolescents in middle schools. Data on LBP and the risk factors for LBP were collected from the parents by self-administered questionnaire and from adolescents by face-to-face interview. Blood samples were tested in an accredited laboratory; and 25(OH)D was measured using liquid chromat...

(The North American Menopause Society (NAMS)) Lumbar disc degeneration and resulting lower back pain become greater concerns with age and disproportionately affect women more than men, likely as a result of decreasing estrogen levels during menopause. A new study demonstrates that vitamin D deficiency, smoking, high body mass index (BMI), and osteoporosis are risk factors for greater back pain. Study results are published online today in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

This study aims to show if vitamin D replacement has an effect on the spinal inhibitory pathways through CSP parameters. Female patients who have CWP with vitamin D deficiency were included. Patients received an 8-week replacement therapy of vitamin D. Patients’ pain were evaluated using the visual analog scale (VAS) and Leeds assessment of neuropathic symptoms and signs pain scale (LANSS). Quality of life with Nottingham Health Profile (NHP) and CSP parameters were also recorded before and after treatment. A total of 51 patients were included in the final analyses. The mean age of the patients was 44.3 ± 12.7...

DISCUSSION: Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency can cause or worsen neck and back pain and muscle spasm. The correction of vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency plays an important role in the treatment of chronic neck and back pain and muscle spasm among patients having concurrent vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency because it can be prevented and treated easily.Given the high health care expenditure on the treatment of chronic neck and back pain, prompt and accurate diagnosis and treatment of vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency not only increase the quality of care but also reduce the cost.
