B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our Peoria chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes positively impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is shared for all its advantages for Peoria chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Peoria women develop new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It is a big responsibility to form the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day 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%. (1) It’s valuable to start life with as much favorable development as possible and to attend to the body you have when young to support it as it ages.


Older Peoria women find themselves subjected to some unique Peoria spinal and body conditions. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases and raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) reduces the homocysteine levels (as well as the associated risks for disease). (2) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture is all about heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are associated with 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 adjust collagen cross-linking in bone health. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) assists the body in maintaining normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are surely important contributors to spine health and Peoria back pain occurrence. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture observes it every day!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unpleasant effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Peoria back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) helpfully impacts 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 with sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) furthered pain relief outcomes. (8) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture certainly enthusiastically presents such beneficial methods for better patient outcomes!
