Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for Richmond Back Pain Relief

December 12, 2017

Wisdom comes through experience. Johnson Chiropractic welcomes the wisdom shared from past clinical back pain specialists who decided to write about their experiences in treating back pain. Johnson Chiropractic especially welcomes how they merged nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The schooling your Richmond chiropractor acquired in chiropractic school suggested just how important 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 built on the older ones benefitting today’s Richmond back pain patient significantly!


Nutrition as a factor in the care of spinal pain conditions is not novel. Johnson Chiropractic recognizes 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 suggested the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size doesn’t allow much room for a disc herniation, inclining 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 improved by moderate motion. (4) Johnson Chiropractic’s treatment of the spine encompasses just that, motion. Cox Technic, the Richmond chiropractic treatment approach Johnson Chiropractic uses, brings motion to the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition makes a positive difference in a person’s health state. Nutrition makes a welcomed difference in the Richmond health of the spine. Nutrition may influence positively the course of Richmond back pain relief and prevention.


A recent medical research report discusses the benefit of multivitamin nutrition for remedying disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Johnson Chiropractic invites into its Richmond chiropractic practice! A randomized trial of a hundred patients who have this condition studied how well treatment alone and how well treatment plus a multivitamin nutrition supplement (with vitamins like B6, B12 and others) modified their pain, disability and need for NSAID drugs. They found that adding a multivitamin improved the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional factor to the treatment gives the impression of being unassuming, but it does prove to be very 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.
