Tonawanda Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are becoming stars in the Tonawanda bone health and even Tonawanda back pain relief areas. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a handful of the reasons. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation shares recent research behind the testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any reduced levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.

AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

We are aging. We’re not alone in it. Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to those fractures. It is quite an unpleasant cycle! Preventing osteoporosis and improving the health of bone is a fair goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown good as has supplementing with B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote that support continues to enlarge for the possible protective role of B vitamins particularly B2, B6, folate (B9), and B12 for bone health. Research mentioned that eating vitamin B enriched foods is one option to contain any adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right blend of B vitamins to do the best for bone health. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation will collaborate with you to find out what is best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For a long time, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation has read about the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the newest review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins. 14 studies stated that blood tests showing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, especially women.  Taking folate vitamin B9 (500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 reduced the risk of hip fracture. These findings lead the researchers to propose that checking folate and homocysteine blood levels in elderly patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is crucial. They even went so far as to state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is imperative for Tonawanda bone health!

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B

B vitamins may well be a link in managing inflammatory chemicals through homocysteine control, methylation, decreasing CRP, etc. The roles of B vitamins – thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin – in back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders lean toward being anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big concepts. Big deals. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation offers that these effects are beneficial in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
