Doctor Alexander Myasnikov: injections of B vitamins for back pain were considered useful in the past, but their real benefits are a myth.

Many People who have suffered from back pain may report that they have been advised to take injections of B vitamins, which are known to be important for neurological health. Dr. Myasnikov remembered this, simultaneously calling the opinion about the benefits of such injections a myth.

“Contrary to popular belief, a course of injections with B vitamins will not help get rid of back pain,” a famous physician shared his opinion.
Alexander Myasnikov admitted that during his youth, B vitamins in injections were considered perhaps the number one remedy for pain back syndrome. Such injections were prescribed to almost all patients with a similar problem, as they were considered the standard of treatment. But today this method is already a relic of the past; there are no official recommendations for the use of injections of B vitamins for back pain.

Myasnikov added that a deficiency of B vitamins in the body can cause polyneuropathy, a neurological disorder characterized by unpleasant bodily sensations. But this has nothing to do with severe back pain, so replenishing the level of these vitamins will not help solve the problem.

The portal previously wrote that the habit of sitting on the toilet with a gadget can negatively affect the condition of the intestines, contributing to the development of serious violations.
