Toronto Back Pain Care and Bone Health Supported by B vitamins

B vitamins. There are many B vitamins. A few are becoming stars in the Toronto bone health and even Toronto back pain relief worlds. Aging, osteoporosis, back pain, and related fractures are a handful of the reasons. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre presents recent 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’re 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’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 especially 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 blend of B vitamins to do the best for bone health. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre will collaborate with you to find out what’s best for you and your bones.

BONE, BMD, HIP FRACTURE, VITAMIN B

For a long time, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 showing low serum levels of folate (vitamin B9) are indicators of risk for decreased 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 reduced the risk of hip fracture. These findings lead 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 say it is mandatory. (2) Vitamin B is imperative for Toronto 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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers that these effects are helpful in managing back pain, musculoskeletal pain, and issues that involve bone and spine health via nutrition.
