Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for Baton Rouge Back Pain Relief

Wisdom comes through experience. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation values the wisdom shared from earlier clinical back pain specialists who chose to write about their experiences in treating back pain. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation especially welcomes how they integrated nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The education your Baton Rouge chiropractor secured in chiropractic school pointed out how essential nutrition is to health and particularly the health of the spine. Recent medical papers about nutrition about the value of vitamins and minerals in the care of back pain based on the older ones benefitting today’s Baton Rouge back pain patient considerably!


Nutrition as a factor in the care of spinal pain conditions is not newfangled. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows that. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation follows reports about nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, presented it back in 1993 (and even before then). (1) A French researcher wrote about the benefits of vitamin B back in 1968. (2) Another researcher in 1985 suggested the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size does not permit much room for a disc herniation, inclining a person to higher risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The famed spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, discussed that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is improved by introducing motion to the spine. (4) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation’s treatment of the spine involves just that, motion. Cox Technic, the Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment approach Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation uses, brings motion to the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition renders a good change in a person’s health state. Nutrition brings about a positive difference in the Baton Rouge health of the spine. Nutrition may shape positively the course of Baton Rouge back pain relief and prevention.


A recent medical research paper discusses the value of multivitamin nutrition for taking care of disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation invites into its Baton Rouge chiropractic office! A randomized trial of a hundred patients with this condition investigated how well treatment alone and how well treatment plus a multivitamin nutrition supplement (with vitamins like B6, B12 and others) influenced their pain, disability and requirement for NSAID drugs. They found that supplementing with a multivitamin enhanced the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional factor to the treatment seems unassuming, but it does prove to be quite effective for Baton Rouge chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation creates such a nutritional component to the Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan just for you, the Baton Rouge chiropractic patient.
