B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Layden Chiropractic presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our Plainville chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Layden Chiropractic keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes positively influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is featured for all its benefits for Plainville chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Plainville women carry new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It’s a big responsibility to form the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day reduces the danger 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 favorable development as possible and to look after the body you have when young to maintain it as it ages.


Older Plainville women feel some distinctive Plainville spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) decreases the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Layden Chiropractic 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 shows that B vitamins influence bone health likely due to their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may alter osteoclasts or osteoblasts or modulate collagen cross-linking in bone health. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) assists the body in maintaining normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are certainly integral to spine health and Plainville back pain incidence. Layden Chiropractic sees it daily!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of unfavorable effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many Plainville back pain sufferers turn to for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who have L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) helpfully impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may present with acute neurological symptoms but recover 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) furthered pain relief outcomes. (8) Layden Chiropractic certainly happily shares such beneficial methods for superior patient outcomes!
