B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Chiropractic Care discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Chicago chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Chiropractic Care keeps up on how specific nutritional changes positively influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is featured for all its advantages for Chicago chiropractic back pain sufferers.

VITAMIN B FOR YOUNGER WOMEN

Younger Chicago women develop new bodies in their own bodies during pregnancy. It’s a big deal to create the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily decreases the chance of neural tube defects (like spine-related spina bifida and anencephaly) in the first 28 days of pregnancy by 50% to 70%. (1) It is valuable to start life with as much favorable development as possible and to take care of the body you have when young to maintain it as it grows older.

VITAMIN B FOR OLDER WOMEN’S SPINES

Older Chicago women experience some distinctive Chicago spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) drops the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Chiropractic Care is all about heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are related to a greater risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research reports that B vitamins influence bone health likely because of their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may modify osteoclasts or osteoblasts or modulate collagen cross-linking in bone health. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) assists the body in maintaining normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are certainly important contributors to spine health and Chicago back pain incidence. Chiropractic Care witnesses it every day!

VITAMIN B FOR Chicago BACK PAIN RELIEF

Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unpleasant effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Chicago back pain sufferers take for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) positively 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 more than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) enhanced pain relief outcomes. (8) Chiropractic Care certainly enthusiastically presents such beneficial approaches for better patient outcomes!
