Nutrition as a factor in the care of spinal pain conditions is not novel. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville recognizes that. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville follows reports about nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, wrote of it back in 1993 (and even earlier). (1) A French researcher reported the benefits of vitamin B back in 1968. (2) Another researcher in 1985 suggested the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size does not allow much room for a disc herniation, predisposing a person to higher risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The famed spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, discussed that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is enhanced by moderate motion. (4) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville’s treatment of the spine encompasses just that, motion. Cox Technic, the St. Francisville chiropractic treatment approach Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville offers, brings motion to the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition makes a positive change in a person’s health status. Nutrition brings about a positive difference in the St. Francisville health of the spine. Nutrition may affect positively the course of St. Francisville back pain relief and prevention.


A recent medical research paper discusses the advantage of multivitamin nutrition for taking care of disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville welcomes into its St. Francisville chiropractic office! A randomized trial of a hundred patients who have this condition examined how well treatment alone and how well treatment plus a multivitamin nutrition supplement (with vitamins like B6, B12 and others) shaped their pain, disability and need for NSAID drugs. They found that including a multivitamin improved the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional element to the treatment seems easy, but it does prove to be quite effective for St. Francisville chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy.
