B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Spine & Sports Rehab Center presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Spine & Sports Rehab Center keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes beneficially impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is presented for all its advantages for Baton Rouge chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Baton Rouge women develop new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It is a big deal 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’s beneficial to start life with as much beneficial development as feasible and to attend to the body you have when young to support it as it grows older.


Older Baton Rouge women feel some distinctive Baton Rouge spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) reduces the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center is concerned with heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are associated with a higher risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research reports that B vitamins affect 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) helps the body maintain normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are surely important contributors to spine health and Baton Rouge back pain occurrence. Spine & Sports Rehab Center witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unfavorable effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Baton Rouge back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) positively influences 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 longer than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) increased pain relief outcomes. (8) Spine & Sports Rehab Center certainly enthusiastically shares such positive methods for better patient outcomes!
