Wisdom of Nutritional Supplements for Georgetown Back Pain Relief

December 12, 2017

Wisdom comes from experience. Dr. Butwell welcomes the wisdom shared from prior clinical back pain specialists who chose to write about their experiences in treating back pain. Dr. Butwell especially welcomes how they merged nutrition into the back pain relief treatment plan. The education your Georgetown chiropractor obtained in chiropractic school pointed out how key nutrition is to health and particularly the health of the spine. New nutrition papers today about the value of vitamins and minerals in the care of back pain built on the older ones benefitting today’s Georgetown back pain patient greatly!


Nutrition as a part of the care of spinal pain conditions is not new. Dr. Butwell recognizes that. Dr. Butwell tracks nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, presented it back in 1993 (and even earlier). (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 doesn’t leave 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, discussed that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is improved by introducing motion to the spine. (4) Dr. Butwell’s treatment of the spine includes just that, motion. Cox Technic, the Georgetown chiropractic treatment method Dr. Butwell uses, brings motion to the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition renders a good difference in a person’s health state. Nutrition makes a positive difference in the Georgetown health of the spine. Nutrition may shape helpfully the course of Georgetown back pain relief and prevention.


A recent medical research paper discusses the value of multivitamin nutrition for remedying disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Dr. Butwell invites into its Georgetown 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) affected their pain, disability and requirement for NSAID drugs. They found that supplementing with a multivitamin enhanced the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional component to the treatment gives the impression of being unassuming, but it does show to be quite effective for Georgetown chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy. Dr. Butwell creates such a nutritional component to the Georgetown chiropractic treatment plan just for you, the Georgetown chiropractic patient.
