Gentle Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain; B Vitamins Are Important

Gentle Burlington and Hamilton 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 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 produced more improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s no wonder that Spinal Care Clinic values Cox® Technic! It is gentle and effective for chronic back pain as well as neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: B Vitamins Vital Through All Life Stages

Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Burlington and Hamilton 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 risk 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 optimally. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is related to problems like stroke. Good news! Of late a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How is your B status? Let’s find out!  Spinal Care Clinic will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
