B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Groton chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes positively influence specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is presented for all its benefits for Groton chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Groton women carry new bodies in their own bodies when pregnant. It’s a big deal to create the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily decreases 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 beneficial to start life with as much favorable development as possible and to take care of the body you have when young to maintain it as it ages.


Older Groton women experience some unique Groton spinal and body issues. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases and elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) decreases the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 shows that B vitamins affect bone health likely because of 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) assists the body in maintaining normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are surely integral to spine health and Groton back pain occurrence. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office sees it every day!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unpleasant effects of taking NSAIDS to which many Groton back pain sufferers turn to for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who have L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) positively influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may present with acute neurological symptoms but progress 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) increased pain relief outcomes. (8) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office certainly enthusiastically presents such positive approaches for superior patient outcomes!
