Eugene Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are rising stars in the Eugene bone health and even Eugene back pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a few of the causes. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic shares new 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 are 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 such fractures. It is quite an unpleasant cycle! Preventing osteoporosis and improving the health of bone is a reasonable goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown good as has supplementing with B vitamins. Recent researchers wrote that support keeps enlarging 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 adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right blend of B vitamins to be optimal for bone health. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic will work with you to discover what’s best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For years, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 reported that blood tests revealing 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) 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 vital. They even went so far as to state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is valuable for Eugene bone health!

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY BENEFIT OF VITAMIN B

B vitamins may well be a link in controlling 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 lean toward being anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory. (3) Big words. Big concepts. Big deals. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers that these effects are beneficial in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
