B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Malverne Health & Wellness discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Malverne chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Malverne Health & Wellness keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes positively impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is presented for all its benefits for Malverne chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Malverne women carry new bodies in their own bodies during pregnancy. It’s a big duty to form the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily decreases the chance 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 valuable to start life with as much favorable development as feasible and to take care of the body you have when young to maintain it as it ages.


Older Malverne women feel some distinctive Malverne spinal and body issues. 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) Malverne Health & Wellness 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 influence bone health likely because of their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may change osteoclasts or osteoblasts or adjust collagen cross-linking in bone health. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) helps the body maintain normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are surely important contributors to spine health and Malverne back pain incidence. Malverne Health & Wellness sees it every day!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unpleasant effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Malverne back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who have L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) helpfully influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Cases of vitamin B12 deficiency may present with acute neurological symptoms but recover with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients with sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) improved pain relief outcomes. (8) Malverne Health & Wellness certainly happily shares such positive approaches for better patient outcomes!
