B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

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


Younger Sitka women carry new bodies in their own bodies while pregnant. It’s a big deal to form the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day 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 advantageous 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 ages.


Older Sitka women feel some unique Sitka spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) decreases the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is all about heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are associated with a greater risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research reports that B vitamins influence bone health likely because of their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may modify 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 important contributors to spine health and Sitka back pain incidence. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of unpleasant effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Sitka back pain sufferers take for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients with L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) helpfully impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Cases of vitamin B12 deficiency may present with acute neurological symptoms but progress with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients who have sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) improved pain relief outcomes. (8) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka certainly happily presents such beneficial approaches for better patient outcomes!
