B Vitamins As Effective Helpers to Chiropractic Care of Radiculopathy

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

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn discusses how important nutrition is to the health of our Ashburn chiropractic patients and their bodies, particularly their backs. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn keeps abreast of how specific nutritional changes beneficially impact specific conditions related to spinal health. Here, vitamin B is presented for all its advantages for Ashburn chiropractic back pain sufferers.


Younger Ashburn women develop new bodies in their own bodies while pregnant. It is a big duty to form 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 valuable to start life with as much favorable development as feasible and to attend to the body you have when young to maintain it as it grows older.


Older Ashburn women feel some distinctive Ashburn spinal and body issues. 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is all about heart and bone health, too! Low levels of B vitamins are related to a greater risk of degenerative diseases like osteoporosis. (3) Research shows that B vitamins influence bone health likely because of 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 surely integral to spine health and Ashburn back pain incidence. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn witnesses it every day!


Taking B vitamins can reduce the risk of unpleasant effects of consuming NSAIDS to which many Ashburn back pain sufferers turn to for some pain relief. (5) Including a multivitamin to the treatment plan for pain relief for patients who are experiencing L5S1 vertebrogenic radiculopathy (sciatica) positively influences the pain relief outcomes. (6) Cases of vitamin B12 deficiency may find themselves experiencing acute neurological symptoms but progress 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) enhanced pain relief outcomes. (8) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn certainly happily shares such positive approaches for superior patient outcomes!
