B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Johnson Chiropractic discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Richmond chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Johnson Chiropractic keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes positively impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is shared for all its advantages for Richmond chiropractic back pain sufferers.

VITAMIN B FOR YOUNGER WOMEN

Younger Richmond women develop new bodies in their own bodies while pregnant. It’s a big duty to create the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily 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 possible and to take care of the body you have when young to support it as it ages.

VITAMIN B FOR OLDER WOMEN’S SPINES

Older Richmond women feel some unique Richmond spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases and elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) decreases the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Johnson Chiropractic 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 affect bone health likely because of their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may alter osteoclasts or osteoblasts or modulate 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 Richmond back pain incidence. Johnson Chiropractic sees it daily!

VITAMIN B FOR Richmond BACK PAIN RELIEF

Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unpleasant effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Richmond back pain sufferers turn to 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 impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Cases of vitamin B12 deficiency may present with acute neurological symptoms but improve 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) Johnson Chiropractic certainly happily shares such positive approaches for better patient outcomes!
