Millville Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are becoming stars in the Millville bone health and even Millville back pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a handful of the causes. Wilson Family Chiropractic presents recent research behind the testing of B vitamin levels and addressing any reduced levels with diet and supplementation as appropriate.

AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

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

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For years, Wilson Family Chiropractic has read about the suggestions of Vitamin B for bone health, and the latest review article of 29 studies supports testing and supplementation of B vitamins. 14 studies reported that blood tests showing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, particularly women.  Taking folate vitamin B9 (500mcg-5mg a day) enhanced BMD in another study. Taking B6 decreased the risk of hip fracture. These findings prompted the researchers to suggest 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 valuable for Millville bone health!

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B

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