May 01, 2018

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

New Hampshire Spine and Sport presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. New Hampshire Spine and Sport keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes positively impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is shared for all its benefits for Southern New Hampshire chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Southern New Hampshire women carry new bodies in their own bodies while pregnant. It is a big responsibility to create 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 valuable to start life with as much beneficial development as possible and to take care of the body you have when young to support it as it ages.


Older Southern New Hampshire women undergo some unique Southern New Hampshire spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases 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) New Hampshire Spine and Sport 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 due to their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may alter 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 Southern New Hampshire back pain incidence. New Hampshire Spine and Sport witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of adverse effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many Southern New Hampshire back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients with L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) positively influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may find themselves experiencing acute neurological symptoms but improve with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients who have sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) furthered pain relief outcomes. (8) New Hampshire Spine and Sport certainly enthusiastically presents such beneficial methods for superior patient outcomes!
