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

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

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 numerous different tests that flexion distraction improved 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 produced greater improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s not surprising that Palmer Chiropractic Center values Cox® Technic! It’s gentle and useful for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many more spine pain conditions.

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

Lynchburg chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Lynchburg chiropractor is here for you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is recommended to all pregnant women to reduce the risk of neural tube defects in newborns.  Low vitamin B12 status is associated with a higher chance of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, making sure that ideal vitamin B status may be tougher than for others. Older folks just do not absorb it very well. 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) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Shall we check that out together?  Palmer Chiropractic Center will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
