B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Spinal Care Clinic discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Spinal Care Clinic keeps up on how specific nutritional changes positively influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is shared for all its advantages for Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Burlington and Hamilton women develop new bodies in their own bodies during pregnancy. It’s a big responsibility to form the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily 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 beneficial development as possible and to look after the body you have when young to maintain it as it grows older.


Older Burlington and Hamilton women feel some distinctive Burlington and Hamilton spinal and body conditions. 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) Spinal Care Clinic is all about 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 due to 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) helps the body maintain normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are surely important contributors to spine health and Burlington and Hamilton back pain incidence. Spinal Care Clinic sees it every day!

(6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may come into the office with acute neurological symptoms but recover with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients who have sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) improved pain relief outcomes.
