B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Satterwhite Chiropractic presents new studies about just how important nutrition is to the health of our Oxford chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Satterwhite Chiropractic keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes beneficially influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is featured for all its advantages for Oxford chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Oxford women develop new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It’s a big deal to create the body for a new person! Consuming12 400 mcg of folic acid a day 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 is valuable to start life with as much beneficial development as possible and to attend to the body you have when young to support it as it grows older.


Older Oxford women undergo some unique Oxford spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases and raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) decreases the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic is concerned with heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are associated with a greater 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 modify 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 Oxford back pain occurrence. Satterwhite Chiropractic witnesses it daily!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of adverse effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Oxford back pain sufferers take for some pain relief. (5) Adding 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) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may find themselves experiencing acute neurological symptoms but improve with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients with sciatic leg pain for more than one month, including vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) improved pain relief outcomes. (8) Satterwhite Chiropractic certainly enthusiastically presents such beneficial methods for superior patient outcomes!
