Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for Richmond Back Pain Relief

Wisdom comes through experience. Johnson Chiropractic values the wisdom shared from earlier clinical back pain specialists who chose to write about their experiences in treating back pain. Johnson Chiropractic especially appreciates how they merged nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The schooling your Richmond chiropractor acquired in chiropractic school indicated just how key nutrition is to health and especially the health of the spine. Recent medical papers about nutrition about the value of vitamins and minerals in treating back pain based on the older ones helping today’s Richmond back pain patient significantly!


Nutrition as a factor in the care of spinal pain conditions is not new. Johnson Chiropractic knows that. Johnson Chiropractic follows reports about nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, discussed it back in 1993 (and even before then). (1) A French researcher wrote about the benefits of vitamin B back in 1968. (2) Another researcher in 1985 defined the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size doesn’t leave much room for a disc herniation, inclining a person to increased risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The renowned spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, discussed that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is enhanced by introducing motion to the spine. (4) Johnson Chiropractic’s treatment of the spine involves just that, motion. Cox Technic, the Richmond chiropractic treatment approach Johnson Chiropractic uses, brings motion to the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition renders a positive difference in a person’s health status. Nutrition makes a positive difference in the Richmond health of the spine. Nutrition may shape positively the course of Richmond back pain relief and prevention.


A newly published medical research paper discusses the value of multivitamin nutrition for taking care of disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Johnson Chiropractic welcomes into its Richmond chiropractic office! A randomized trial of 100 patients with this condition studied how well treatment alone and how well treatment plus a multivitamin nutrition supplement (with vitamins like B6, B12 and others) influenced their pain, disability and need for NSAID drugs. The authors found that supplementing with a multivitamin enhanced the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional factor to the treatment gives the impression of being simple, but it does prove to be quite effective for Richmond chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy. Johnson Chiropractic develops such a nutritional module to the Richmond chiropractic treatment plan just for you, the Richmond chiropractic patient.
