B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

Vitamins for back pain? Vitamins for leg pain? Yes!

Back And Neck Care Center presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our Severna Park chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Back And Neck Care Center keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes positively impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is presented for all its advantages for Severna Park chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Severna Park women develop new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It’s a big duty to form the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day reduces the risk of neural tube defects (like spine-related spina bifida and anencephaly) in the first 28 days of pregnancy by 50% to 70%. (1) It’s advantageous to start life with as much favorable development as feasible and to take care of the body you have when young to support it as it ages.


Older Severna Park women experience some unique Severna Park spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) reduces the homocysteine levels (as well as the associated risks for disease). (2) Back And Neck Care Center is concerned with heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are associated with a higher risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research shows that B vitamins influence bone health likely due to their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may change osteoclasts or osteoblasts or adjust collagen cross-linking in bone health. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) assists the body in maintaining normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are surely important contributors to spine health and Severna Park back pain occurrence. Back And Neck Care Center witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of adverse effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Severna Park back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) helpfully impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may come into the office with acute neurological symptoms but progress with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients who have sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) enhanced pain relief outcomes. (8) Back And Neck Care Center certainly happily shares such beneficial methods for better patient outcomes!
