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

Gentle Minster chiropractic treatment of chronic low back pain is best.

GENTLE IS BEST

Chronic low back pain reacts more positively to gentle spinal manipulation than more forceful. A new research paper reports 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 along with Oswestry Disability Index ratings of disability. The bottom line is that for chronic low back pain patients, flexion distraction offered greater improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s no wonder that Minster Chiropractic Center appreciates Cox® Technic! It’s gentle and helpful for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many more spine pain conditions.

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

Minster chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Minster chiropractor will help you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is suggested to all pregnant women to reduce the risk of neural tube defects in newborns.  Low vitamin B12 status is associated with an increased risk of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, ensuring ideal vitamin B status may be harder than for others. Older folks just do not absorb it optimally. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is connected to issues like stroke. Good news! Of late a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Let’s find out!  Minster Chiropractic Center will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
