Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for Ashburn Back Pain Relief

Wisdom comes through experience. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn appreciates the wisdom passed down from prior clinical back pain specialists who chose to write about their experiences in treating back pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn especially appreciates how they integrated nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The education your Ashburn chiropractor reaped in chiropractic school indicated just how important nutrition is to health and markedly the health of the spine. Recent medical papers about nutrition about the value of vitamins and minerals in treating back pain based on the older ones benefitting today’s Ashburn back pain patient greatly!


Nutrition as a part of the care of spinal pain conditions is not newfangled. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn recognizes that. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn follows reports about nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, discussed it back in 1993 (and even earlier). (1) A French researcher recorded the benefits of vitamin B back in 1968. (2) Another researcher in 1985 suggested the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size does not permit much room for a disc herniation, predisposing a person to increased risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The eminent spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, discussed that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is enhanced by moderate motion. (4) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn’s treatment of the spine includes just that, motion. Cox Technic, the Ashburn chiropractic treatment approach Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn offers, generates motion in the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition makes a positive difference in a person’s health status. Nutrition brings about a welcomed difference in the Ashburn health of the spine. Nutrition may shape helpfully the course of Ashburn back pain relief and prevention.


A recent medical research paper reports on the advantage of multivitamin nutrition for remedying disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn invites into its Ashburn chiropractic practice! A randomized trial of a hundred patients who have this condition examined how well treatment alone and how well treatment plus a multivitamin nutrition supplement (with vitamins like B6, B12 and others) modified their pain, disability and need for NSAID drugs. The authors found that supplementing with a multivitamin improved the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional element to the treatment gives the impression of being simple, but it does prove to be quite effective for Ashburn chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn creates such a nutritional section to the Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan just for you, the Ashburn chiropractic patient.
