Severna Park Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are becoming stars in the Severna Park bone health and even Severna Park back pain relief areas. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a few of the causes. Back And Neck Care Center shares new research supporting the testing of B vitamin levels and addressing any low levels with diet and supplementation as appropriate.

AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

We are aging. We are not alone in this. Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to those fractures. It is quite an unpleasant circle! Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a fair goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown valuable as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers state that support continues to enlarge for the possible protective role of B vitamins especially B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research mentioned that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one option to contain any adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It is important to get the right combination of B vitamins to be optimal for bone health. Back And Neck Care Center will work with you to discover what is best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For years, Back And Neck Care Center has read about the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the latest review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins. 14 studies reported that blood tests revealing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, particularly women.  Taking folate vitamin B9 (500mcg-5mg a day) improved BMD in another study. Taking B6 decreased the risk of hip fracture. These findings prompted the researchers to propose that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is vital. They even went so far as to write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is important for Severna Park bone health!

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B

B vitamins may well be a link in managing inflammatory chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, lowering CRP, etc. The roles of B vitamins – thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin – in back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders tend toward being anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big concepts. Big deals. Back And Neck Care Center offers that these effects are beneficial in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
