B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

May 01, 2018

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

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


Younger Augusta women carry new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It’s a big duty to create the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily 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 beneficial development as feasible and to take care of the body you have when young to support it as it ages.


Older Augusta women feel some unique Augusta spinal and body conditions. 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) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is all about heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are related to a higher risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research shows that B vitamins affect bone health likely due to their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may alter osteoclasts or osteoblasts or adjust collagen cross-linking in bone health. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) helps the body maintain normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are certainly integral to spine health and Augusta back pain occurrence. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic observes it every day!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of adverse effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Augusta back pain sufferers take for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients with L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) positively 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 with sciatic leg pain for more than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) improved pain relief outcomes. (8) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic certainly enthusiastically shares such positive methods for better patient outcomes!
