Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for Carrolltown Back Pain Relief

Wisdom comes through experience. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation welcomes the wisdom shared from earlier clinical back pain specialists who decided to write about their experiences in treating back pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation especially values how they incorporated nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The education your Carrolltown chiropractor obtained in chiropractic school indicated just how key nutrition is to health and markedly the health of the spine. New nutrition papers today about the value of vitamins and minerals in the care of back pain built on the older ones benefitting today’s Carrolltown back pain patient significantly!


Nutrition as a part of the care of spinal pain conditions is not new. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recognizes that. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation follows reports about nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, recorded it back in 1993 (and even earlier). (1) A French researcher reported the benefits of vitamin B back in 1968. (2) Another researcher in 1985 discussed the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size doesn’t leave much room for a disc herniation, inclining a person to higher risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The renowned spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, discussed that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is enhanced by introducing motion to the spine. (4) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation’s treatment of the spine involves just that, motion. Cox Technic, the Carrolltown chiropractic treatment approach Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers, brings motion to the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition effects a good change in a person’s health state. Nutrition generates a positive difference in the Carrolltown health of the spine. Nutrition may affect positively the course of Carrolltown back pain relief and prevention.


A recent medical research paper reports on the advantage of multivitamin nutrition for taking care of disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation invites into its Carrolltown chiropractic practice! A randomized trial of a hundred patients who have this condition studied how well treatment alone and how well treatment plus a multivitamin nutrition supplement (with vitamins like B6, B12 and others) modified their pain, disability and requirement for NSAID drugs. They found that supplementing with a multivitamin improved the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional factor to the treatment seems unassuming, but it does prove to be very effective for Carrolltown chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation develops such a nutritional module to the Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan just for you, the Carrolltown chiropractic patient.
