How UV Damage Can Affect Your Spine

It’s so important to put on sunscreen not only for the health of your skin, but for your spine. UV damage can have many effects on your spine:

  • Inflammation: UV exposure can trigger inflammation in the skin and body. 
  • Bone health: Your bones need Vitamin D in order to function properly. Deficiencies in Vitamin D can lead to bone health issues such as osteoporosis which weakens bones in the spine. 
  • Pain management: Sunburn can be uncomfortable and painful which may influence posture and movement, indirectly affecting your spine.
