Vitamin D deficiency

March 2017 - What a winter we have had!

It has been one of warmest winters recorded in Toronto. Although we were blessed with record breaking temperatures, we have had only a few sunny days. Unfortunately, the sun rays we do get in the winter months are not as strong when compared to the summer. This results in limited sun exposure for almost 6 months and thus reduces our Vitamin D levels.

Though we get Vitamin D in our diet, we depend on the sun to provide that extra boost. Vitamin D is critical for many of our body's functions including bone formation, mood, and immunity to name a few.

Check out this study, which concludes lower levels of Vitamin D can lead to chronic pain. Please consult a physician before taking Vitamin D supplements.

Hello Everyone, due to the recent spread of the Covid-19 in the GTA we have decided to temporarily close Physiofit Health and Rehab for at least 2 weeks. We take the safety of our patients and staff very seriously and believe this is the best move to help stop the spread of this virus within our community. We thank you for your support during these difficult times and hope we can still assist you with any questions or concerns you may have. We will do our best to contact clients who are in the middle of treatment plans to see if we can provide remote education, exercise prescriptions and recommendations to help you continue your path to recovery. Please contact us VIA email or phone if you need any assistance.
