B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

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


Younger Manchester women carry new bodies in their own bodies while pregnant. It is a big responsibility to form 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%. (1) It is valuable to start life with as much beneficial development as possible and to look after the body you have when young to support it as it ages.


Older Manchester women feel some distinctive Manchester 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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries 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 affect bone health likely because of their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may change 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 integral to spine health and Manchester back pain incidence. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of adverse effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Manchester 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 (sciatic leg pain) helpfully influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may come into the office with acute neurological symptoms but improve with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients who have sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) furthered pain relief outcomes. (8) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries certainly happily presents such positive methods for superior patient outcomes!
