Paramus Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are becoming stars in the Paramus bone health and even Paramus back pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a few of the reasons. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center shares recent research behind the testing of B vitamin levels and addressing any reduced levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.

AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

We are aging. We’re not alone in it. Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to such fractures. It’s quite a vicious cycle! Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a reasonable goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown valuable as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers state that support continues to expand for the possible protective role of B vitamins especially B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research suggested that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one option to contain any unwanted effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right blend of B vitamins to do the best for bone health. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center will collaborate with you to discover what’s best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For a long time, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center has studied the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the latest review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins. 14 studies stated that blood tests showing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, particularly women.  Taking folate vitamin B9 (500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 decreased the risk of hip fracture. These findings lead the researchers to propose that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even go so far as to write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is valuable for Paramus bone health!

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B

B vitamins may well be a link in controlling inflammatory chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, decreasing CRP, etc. The roles of B vitamins – thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin – in back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders lean toward being anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory.

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center offers that these effects are helpful in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
