B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

New Roads Chiropractic Center discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our New Roads chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. New Roads Chiropractic Center 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 New Roads chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger New Roads women carry new bodies in their own bodies during pregnancy. It is a big responsibility to form 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 attend to the body you have when young to maintain it as it ages.


Older New Roads women find themselves subjected to some unique New Roads spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) reduces the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center is concerned with heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are associated with a greater risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research reports that B vitamins influence bone health likely due to 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) helps the body maintain normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are surely integral to spine health and New Roads back pain occurrence. New Roads Chiropractic Center observes it daily!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of adverse effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many New Roads back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) 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 more than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) enhanced pain relief outcomes. (8) New Roads Chiropractic Center certainly happily presents such positive methods for superior patient outcomes!
