Fort Wayne Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. Some are rising stars in the Fort Wayne bone health and even Fort Wayne back pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a handful of the causes. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic presents recent research supporting the testing of B vitamin levels and addressing 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 such 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 valuable as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers state that support continues to expand 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 mix of B vitamins to be optimal for bone health. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic will work with you to discover what’s best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For a long time, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 reported that blood tests revealing 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) improved 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 vital. They even go so far as to write it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is imperative for Fort Wayne 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. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic offers that these effects are beneficial in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues involving bone and spine health via nutrition.
