Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for McHenry Back Pain Relief

Wisdom comes through experience. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic appreciates the wisdom passed down from past clinical back pain specialists who decided to write about their experiences in treating back pain. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic especially values how they incorporated nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The education your McHenry chiropractor obtained in chiropractic school pointed out how important nutrition is to health and particularly the health of the spine. New nutrition papers today about the value of vitamins and minerals in treating back pain built on the older ones benefitting today’s McHenry back pain patient greatly!


Nutrition as a part of the care of spinal pain conditions is not new. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows that. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic follows reports about nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, wrote of 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 suggested the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size does not permit much room for a disc herniation, predisposing a person to higher risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The famed spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, pointed out that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is improved by introducing motion to the spine. (4) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic’s treatment of the spine involves just that, motion. Cox Technic, the McHenry chiropractic treatment method OrthoIllinois Chiropractic uses, generates motion in the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition renders a positive change in a person’s health state. Nutrition brings about a welcomed difference in the McHenry health of the spine. Nutrition may affect helpfully the course of McHenry back pain relief and prevention.


A recent medical research paper reports on the benefit of multivitamin nutrition for remedying disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition OrthoIllinois Chiropractic welcomes into its McHenry chiropractic practice! A randomized trial of 100 patients who have this condition examined 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. The authors found that including a multivitamin enhanced the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional element to the treatment seems unassuming, but it does prove to be very effective for McHenry chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic creates such a nutritional section to the McHenry chiropractic treatment plan just for you, the McHenry chiropractic patient.
