B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Tarrytown Chiropractic discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Tarrytown chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Tarrytown Chiropractic keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes beneficially influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is shared for all its benefits for Tarrytown chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Tarrytown women carry new bodies in their own bodies while pregnant. It’s a big responsibility to form the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily reduces the danger 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 advantageous to start life with as much favorable development as feasible and to take care of the body you have when young to maintain it as it grows older.


Older Tarrytown women feel some unique Tarrytown spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases and elevates 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) Tarrytown Chiropractic is concerned with heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are related to a greater 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 integral to spine health and Tarrytown back pain incidence. Tarrytown Chiropractic sees it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of unpleasant effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many Tarrytown back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who have L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatic leg pain) positively impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Cases of vitamin B12 deficiency may present with acute neurological symptoms but progress 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) increased pain relief outcomes. (8) Tarrytown Chiropractic certainly enthusiastically shares such beneficial approaches for superior patient outcomes!
