B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Minster Chiropractic Center presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our Minster chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Minster 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 benefits for Minster chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Minster women carry new bodies in their own bodies during pregnancy. It’s a big duty to create the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day 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 percent. (1) It’s beneficial to start life with as much beneficial development as possible and to attend to the body you have when young to support it as it ages.


Older Minster women undergo some unique Minster spinal and body conditions. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases 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) Minster Chiropractic Center is concerned with heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are related to a higher risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research reports 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 important contributors to spine health and Minster back pain incidence. Minster Chiropractic Center witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of unfavorable effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Minster back pain sufferers take 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 recover with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients with sciatic leg pain for more than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) increased pain relief outcomes. (8) Minster Chiropractic Center certainly enthusiastically shares such positive methods for better patient outcomes!
