Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for Vancouver Back Pain Relief

Wisdom comes from experience. Vancouver Disc Centers welcomes the wisdom passed down from past clinical back pain specialists who decided to write about their experiences in treating back pain. Vancouver Disc Centers especially welcomes how they integrated nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The education your Vancouver chiropractor secured in chiropractic school suggested just how important nutrition is to health and markedly the health of the spine. Recent medical papers about nutrition about the value of vitamins and minerals in treating back pain based on the older ones helping today’s Vancouver back pain patient significantly!


Nutrition as a factor in the care of spinal pain conditions is not newfangled. Vancouver Disc Centers knows that. Vancouver Disc Centers tracks nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, recorded it back in 1993 (and even earlier). (1) A French researcher reported 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 allow much room for a disc herniation, predisposing a person to higher risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The eminent spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, pointed out that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is improved by introducing motion to the spine. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers’s treatment of the spine encompasses just that, motion. Cox Technic, the Vancouver chiropractic treatment approach Vancouver Disc Centers uses, brings motion to the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition renders a good difference in a person’s health status. Nutrition generates a positive difference in the Vancouver health of the spine. Nutrition may influence positively the course of Vancouver back pain relief and prevention.


A recent medical research paper reports on the advantage of multivitamin nutrition for treating disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Vancouver Disc Centers invites into its Vancouver chiropractic practice! A randomized trial of a hundred 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) modified their pain, disability and requirement for NSAID drugs. They found that adding a multivitamin enriched the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional element to the treatment appears to be simple, but it does show to be quite effective for Vancouver chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy. Vancouver Disc Centers develops such a nutritional section to the Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan just for you, the Vancouver chiropractic patient.
