Pensacola Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are rising stars in the Pensacola bone health and even Pensacola back pain relief areas. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a handful of the causes. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center presents new research behind 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’re not alone in it. Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to such fractures. It’s quite a vicious cycle! Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a fair goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown effective as has supplementing with B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote 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 option to contain any adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right mix of B vitamins to be optimal for bone health. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center will work with you to discover what is best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For years, Pensacola Spinal Rehab 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 revealing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, particularly women.  Taking folate vitamin B9 (500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 decreased the risk of hip fracture. These findings lead 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 write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is imperative for Pensacola 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 tend toward being anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory.

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offers that these effects are helpful in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues affecting bone and spine health via nutrition.
