Colorado Springs Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are rising stars in the Colorado Springs bone health and even Colorado Springs back pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a handful of the causes. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR shares recent research supporting the testing of B vitamin levels and adjusting any low levels with diet and supplementation as applicable.

AGING, OSTEOPOROSIS, FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

We’re 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’s quite a vicious circle! Preventing osteoporosis and enhancing the health of bone is a reasonable goal when considering aging. Dietary modification has been shown valuable as has the supplementation of B vitamins. Recent researchers state that support continues to grow 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 way to go to contain any adverse effects of high-dose B vitamin supplementation. (1) It’s important to get the right mix of B vitamins to do the best for bone health. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR will work with you to find out what’s best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For a long time, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR has studied 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 stated that blood tests revealing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are signs of risk for decreased 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 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 state it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is valuable for Colorado Springs 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers that these effects are beneficial in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues affecting bone and spine health via nutrition.
