B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Paramus chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes beneficially influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is shared for all its benefits for Paramus chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Paramus women carry new bodies in their own bodies while pregnant. It is a big duty to form the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily decreases the risk 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 beneficial to start life with as much favorable development as possible and to take care of the body you have when young to support it as it ages.


Older Paramus women find themselves subjected to some unique Paramus spinal and body conditions. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) drops the homocysteine levels (as well as the associated risks for disease). (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is concerned with heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are related to a greater 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) assists the body in maintaining normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are certainly integral to spine health and Paramus back pain incidence. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of unpleasant effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many Paramus back pain sufferers turn to for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients with L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) helpfully influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Cases of 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, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) improved pain relief outcomes. (8) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center certainly happily presents such positive approaches for superior patient outcomes!
