B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

May 01, 2018

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

Moriarty Chiropractic presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our Nashua chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Moriarty Chiropractic keeps up on how specific nutritional changes beneficially impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is featured for all its advantages for Nashua chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Nashua women develop new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It’s a big deal to create the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day 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%. (1) It is advantageous to start life with as much favorable development as possible and to look after the body you have when young to support it as it grows older.


Older Nashua women experience some distinctive Nashua 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 (as well as the associated risks for disease). (2) Moriarty Chiropractic is concerned with heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are related to a higher risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research reports that B vitamins affect bone health likely due to their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may modify 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 Nashua back pain occurrence. Moriarty Chiropractic witnesses it daily!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of unfavorable effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Nashua back pain sufferers take for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) positively impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Cases of vitamin B12 deficiency may present with acute neurological symptoms but improve with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients who have sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) increased pain relief outcomes. (8) Moriarty Chiropractic certainly happily presents such positive approaches for better patient outcomes!
