Auburn Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are becoming stars in the Auburn bone health and even Auburn back pain relief spheres. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a handful of the reasons. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. presents 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 this. Globally, aging is growing. Along with aging comes the growth of osteoporotic fracture incidence and morbidity, mortality, and cost related to such 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 effective as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote that support continues to grow 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 way to go to contain any unwanted effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right combination of B vitamins to do the best for bone health. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. will work with you to discover what is best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For a long time, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. has studied 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 stated that blood tests showing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures in older people, particularly women.  Taking folate vitamin B9 (500mcg-5mg a day) improved 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 go so far as to write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is imperative for Auburn 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. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers that these effects are helpful in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
