B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

May 01, 2018

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

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


Younger Easley women carry new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It’s a big responsibility to create the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily 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 percent. (1) It’s beneficial to start life with as much beneficial development as feasible and to take care of the body you have when young to support it as it grows older.


Older Easley women undergo some unique Easley spinal and body conditions. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases and elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) drops the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Young Chiropractic is all about 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 affect bone health likely because of their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may change osteoclasts or osteoblasts or modulate 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 Easley back pain occurrence. Young Chiropractic sees it every day!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unfavorable effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many Easley back pain sufferers turn to for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients with L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) positively impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may come into the office with acute neurological symptoms but progress with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients who have sciatic leg pain for more than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) increased pain relief outcomes. (8) Young Chiropractic certainly enthusiastically shares such beneficial methods for better patient outcomes!
