Sandy Springs Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are becoming stars in the Sandy Springs bone health and even Sandy Springs back pain relief areas. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a handful of the reasons. Cross Chiropractic Center shares new research supporting the testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any reduced levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.

AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

We are aging. We’re not alone in it. Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to those fractures. It is quite an unpleasant circle! Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a fair goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown effective as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote that support keeps expanding for the possible protective role of B vitamins especially B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research suggested that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one way to go to contain any unwanted effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right blend of B vitamins to be optimal for bone health. Cross Chiropractic Center will collaborate with you to find out what is best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For years, Cross Chiropractic Center has studied the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the latest review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins. 14 studies reported that blood tests revealing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, especially women.  Taking folate vitamin B9 (500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 reduced the risk of hip fracture. These findings prompted the researchers to suggest that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even went so far as to state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is important for Sandy Springs bone health!

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B

B vitamins may well be a link in managing inflammatory chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, decreasing CRP, etc. The roles of B vitamins – thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin – in back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders lean toward being anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big concepts. Big deals. Cross Chiropractic Center offers that these effects are helpful in dealing with back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
