New Roads Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are rising stars in the New Roads bone health and even New Roads back pain relief spheres. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a few of the causes. New Roads Chiropractic Center shares recent research supporting the testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any reduced levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.

AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

We’re aging. We are not alone in this. Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to those fractures. It is quite an unpleasant cycle! Preventing osteoporosis and improving the health of bone is a reasonable goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown good as has supplementing with B vitamins. Recent researchers state that support continues to expand for the possible protective role of B vitamins especially B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research suggested that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one way to go to contain any unwanted effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It is important to get the right blend of B vitamins to be optimal for bone health. New Roads Chiropractic Center will work with you to find out what’s best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For years, New Roads Chiropractic Center has studied the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the newest review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins. 14 studies reported that blood tests showing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, especially women.  Taking folate vitamin B9 (500mcg-5mg a day) improved BMD in another study. Taking B6 decreased the risk of hip fracture. These findings prompted the researchers to propose that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even went so far as to say it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is valuable for New Roads bone health!

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B

B vitamins may well be a link in controlling inflammatory chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, lowering CRP, etc. The roles of B vitamins – thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin – in back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders lean toward being anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big concepts. Big deals. New Roads Chiropractic Center offers that these effects are beneficial in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
