Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for Eugene Back Pain Relief

Wisdom comes through experience. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic values the wisdom shared from prior clinical back pain specialists who decided to write about their experiences in treating back pain. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic especially values how they merged nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The education your Eugene chiropractor secured in chiropractic school suggested just how essential nutrition is to health and especially the health of the spine. New nutrition papers today about the value of vitamins and minerals in treating back pain built on the older ones benefitting today’s Eugene back pain patient greatly!


Nutrition as a part of the care of spinal pain conditions is not newfangled. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic recognizes that. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic tracks nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, wrote of it back in 1993 (and even earlier). (1) A French researcher wrote about the benefits of vitamin B back in 1968. (2) Another researcher in 1985 defined the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size does not permit much room for a disc herniation, inclining a person to increased risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The famed spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, pointed out that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is enhanced by moderate motion. (4) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic’s treatment of the spine involves just that, motion. Cox Technic, the Eugene chiropractic treatment method Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers, brings motion to the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition makes a good change in a person’s health state. Nutrition brings about a welcomed difference in the Eugene health of the spine. Nutrition may shape positively the course of Eugene back pain relief and prevention.


A newly published medical research paper discusses the benefit of multivitamin nutrition for remedying disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic invites into its Eugene chiropractic practice! A randomized trial of 100 patients who have this condition studied how well treatment alone and how well treatment plus a multivitamin nutrition supplement (with vitamins like B6, B12 and others) changed their pain, disability and requirement for NSAID drugs. The authors found that supplementing with a multivitamin enhanced the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional element to the treatment seems easy, but it does show to be very effective for Eugene chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic develops such a nutritional module to the Eugene chiropractic treatment plan just for you, the Eugene chiropractic patient.
