B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Manahawkin Chiropractic Center discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Manahawkin chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center keeps up on how specific nutritional changes positively influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is featured for all its advantages for Manahawkin chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Manahawkin women develop new bodies in their own bodies during pregnancy. It is a big deal to form the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily reduces the chance of neural tube defects (like spine-related spina bifida and anencephaly) in the first 28 days of pregnancy by 50% to 70%. (1) It is valuable to start life with as much beneficial development as feasible and to take care of the body you have when young to support it as it grows older.


Older Manahawkin women feel some unique Manahawkin spinal and body conditions. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) drops the homocysteine levels (as well as the associated risks for disease). (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic 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 modify osteoclasts or osteoblasts or adjust collagen cross-linking in bone health. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) assists the body in maintaining normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are certainly integral to spine health and Manahawkin back pain incidence. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unpleasant effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Manahawkin back pain sufferers take for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients with L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) positively impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may present with acute neurological symptoms but recover 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center certainly happily shares such beneficial methods for superior patient outcomes!
