B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

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


Younger Carrolltown women develop new bodies in their own bodies during pregnancy. It’s a big deal to form the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily decreases the danger 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 beneficial to start life with as much favorable development as possible and to take care of the body you have when young to maintain it as it grows older.


Older Carrolltown women find themselves subjected to some distinctive Carrolltown 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is concerned with heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are related to a greater 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 surely important contributors to spine health and Carrolltown back pain occurrence. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees it daily!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unfavorable effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Carrolltown back pain sufferers turn to for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who have L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) positively influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may find themselves experiencing acute neurological symptoms but improve 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) enhanced pain relief outcomes. (8) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation certainly enthusiastically shares such positive methods for better patient outcomes!
