B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Palmer Chiropractic Center discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Lynchburg chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Palmer Chiropractic Center keeps up on how specific nutritional changes beneficially impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is presented for all its advantages for Lynchburg chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Lynchburg women carry new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It’s a big duty to create the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily reduces the risk 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 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 Lynchburg women find themselves subjected to some distinctive Lynchburg spinal and body conditions. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases and raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) reduces the homocysteine levels (as well as the associated risks for disease). (2) Palmer Chiropractic 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 change 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 certainly important contributors to spine health and Lynchburg back pain occurrence. Palmer Chiropractic Center witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of adverse effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many Lynchburg back pain sufferers take for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) helpfully impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may find themselves experiencing acute neurological symptoms but progress with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients with sciatic leg pain for more than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) furthered pain relief outcomes. (8) Palmer Chiropractic Center certainly enthusiastically presents such positive methods for superior patient outcomes!
