Gentle Carrolltown Chiropractic Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain; B Vitamins Are Important

Gentle Carrolltown chiropractic treatment of chronic low back pain is superior.

GENTLE IS BEST

Chronic low back pain responds more positively to gentle spinal manipulation than more forceful. A new research paper states that for chronic low back pain patients, gentle flexion-distraction (aka Cox® Technic) is superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust (HVLA), a common form of manipulation. The randomized clinical trial found via several different tests that flexion distraction increased patient Visual Analog Scale ratings of pain as well as Oswestry Disability Index ratings of disability. The bottom line is that for chronic low back pain patients, flexion distraction offered more improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s no wonder that Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation values Cox® Technic! It is gentle and useful for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: B Vitamins Vital Through All Life Stages

Carrolltown chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Carrolltown chiropractor will help you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is suggested to all pregnant women to reduce the risk of neural tube defects in babies.  Low vitamin B12 status is affiliated with a higher chance of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, making sure that ideal vitamin B status may be harder than for others. Older folks just don’t absorb it properly. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is connected to issues like stroke. Good news! Recently a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Let’s find out!  Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
