B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our Pensacola chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center keeps up on how specific nutritional changes beneficially impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is featured for all its benefits for Pensacola chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Pensacola women carry new bodies in their own bodies while pregnant. It is a big duty to create the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day decreases the chance of neural tube defects (like spine-related spina bifida and anencephaly) in the first 28 days of pregnancy by 50 to 70 percent. (1) It is advantageous to start life with as much favorable development as feasible and to look after the body you have when young to support it as it grows older.


Older Pensacola women find themselves subjected to some distinctive Pensacola spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) decreases the homocysteine levels (as well as the associated risks for disease). (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is all about heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are associated with a higher risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research shows that B vitamins influence bone health likely because of their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may alter 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 important contributors to spine health and Pensacola back pain incidence. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of unfavorable effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many Pensacola back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) positively impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may present with acute neurological symptoms but progress with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients who have sciatic leg pain for more than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) increased pain relief outcomes. (8) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center certainly enthusiastically presents such beneficial approaches for superior patient outcomes!
