Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for Sitka Back Pain Relief

Wisdom comes from experience. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka values the wisdom shared from prior clinical back pain specialists who chose to write about their experiences in treating back pain. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka especially welcomes how they merged nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The education your Sitka chiropractor gained in chiropractic school suggested just how significant 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 helping today’s Sitka back pain patient significantly!


Nutrition as a part of the care of spinal pain conditions is not new. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows that. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka follows reports about nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, discussed it back in 1993 (and even before then). (1) A French researcher wrote about the benefits of vitamin B back in 1968. (2) Another researcher in 1985 defined the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size doesn’t leave much room for a disc herniation, inclining a person to increased risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The eminent spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, pointed out that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is enhanced by moderate motion. (4) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s treatment of the spine encompasses just that, motion. Cox Technic, the Sitka chiropractic treatment method Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka uses, generates motion in the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition makes a good difference in a person’s health status. Nutrition brings about a welcomed difference in the Sitka health of the spine. Nutrition may shape positively the course of Sitka back pain relief and prevention.


A recent medical research paper discusses the advantage of multivitamin nutrition for treating disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka welcomes into its Sitka chiropractic office! A randomized trial of 100 patients with this condition examined how well treatment alone and how well treatment plus a multivitamin nutrition supplement (with vitamins like B6, B12 and others) affected their pain, disability and need for NSAID drugs. They found that supplementing with a multivitamin improved the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional factor to the treatment appears to be simple, but it does show to be quite effective for Sitka chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka develops such a nutritional section to the Sitka chiropractic treatment plan just for you, the Sitka chiropractic patient.
