B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

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


Younger San Jose women develop new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It is a big duty to form the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day reduces the chance 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 valuable to start life with as much favorable development as possible and to attend to the body you have when young to maintain it as it ages.


Older San Jose women feel some unique San Jose spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises 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) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions 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 alter 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 certainly integral to spine health and San Jose back pain occurrence. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions witnesses it daily!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unpleasant effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many San Jose back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) positively influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Cases of 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 more than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) improved pain relief outcomes. (8) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions certainly enthusiastically presents such beneficial methods for better patient outcomes!
