B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our St. Francisville chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville keeps up on how specific nutritional changes beneficially influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is featured for all its benefits for St. Francisville chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger St. Francisville women develop new bodies in their own bodies during pregnancy. It is a big duty to create the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day decreases the danger of neural tube defects (like spine-related spina bifida and anencephaly) in the first 28 days of pregnancy by 50 to 70 percent. (1) It is valuable to start life with as much favorable development as feasible and to look after the body you have when young to support it as it grows older.


Older St. Francisville women experience some distinctive St. Francisville spinal and body conditions. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) decreases the homocysteine levels (as well as the associated risks for disease). (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is all about heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are associated with a greater 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) helps the body maintain normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are certainly integral to spine health and St. Francisville back pain occurrence. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville sees it daily!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unfavorable effects of taking NSAIDS to which many St. Francisville back pain sufferers take for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who have L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) helpfully influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may find themselves experiencing acute neurological symptoms but progress with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients who have sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) improved pain relief outcomes. (8) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville certainly enthusiastically presents such positive approaches for better patient outcomes!
