B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Cross Chiropractic Center discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Cross Chiropractic Center keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes positively influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is featured for all its advantages for Sandy Springs chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Sandy Springs women carry new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It is 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%. (1) It’s valuable to start life with as much favorable development as feasible and to look after the body you have when young to support it as it grows older.


Older Sandy Springs women experience some distinctive Sandy Springs spinal and body conditions. After menopause plasma homocysteine rises and elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) reduces the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Cross Chiropractic Center 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 influence bone health likely because of their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may change osteoclasts or osteoblasts or modulate 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 Sandy Springs back pain occurrence. Cross Chiropractic Center sees it daily!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unpleasant effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many Sandy Springs back pain sufferers turn to for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) helpfully influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may come into the office with acute neurological symptoms but progress 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) furthered pain relief outcomes. (8) Cross Chiropractic Center certainly enthusiastically presents such positive approaches for superior patient outcomes!
