B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Innate Wisdom discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our New York City chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Innate Wisdom keeps up on how specific nutritional changes positively impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is presented for all its advantages for New York City chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger New York City women develop new bodies in their own bodies while pregnant. It is a big duty to create the body for a new person! Taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily reduces the risk of neural tube defects (like spine-related spina bifida and anencephaly) in the first 28 days of pregnancy by 50 to 70 percent. (1) It’s valuable to start life with as much favorable development as possible and to attend to the body you have when young to support it as it grows older.


Older New York City women feel some unique New York City spinal and body conditions. After menopause plasma homocysteine increases and raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis for women. Folic acid (vitamin B9) reduces the homocysteine levels (and the associated risks for disease). (2) Innate Wisdom is all about heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are associated with a higher risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research shows that B vitamins influence bone health likely due to their influence on total plasma homocysteine concentrations (TCHY). B12 and THCY may alter osteoclasts or osteoblasts or adjust collagen cross-linking in bone health. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) assists the body in maintaining normal nerve function. (4) Bone health and nerve function are certainly important contributors to spine health and New York City back pain occurrence. Innate Wisdom witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can decrease the risk of unpleasant effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many New York City back pain sufferers try for some pain relief. (5) Adding a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who have L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) helpfully impacts the pain relief outcomes. (6) Patients with vitamin B12 deficiency may come into the office with acute neurological symptoms but improve with vitamin B2 supplementation. (7) In patients with sciatic leg pain for longer than one month, adding vitamin B complex supplementation to the use of diclofenac (NSAID) increased pain relief outcomes. (8) Innate Wisdom certainly happily presents such beneficial methods for better patient outcomes!
