Gentle West Palm Beach Chiropractic Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain; B Vitamins Are Important

Gentle West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment of chronic low back pain is superior.


Chronic low back pain reacts 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 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 not surprising that Chiropractic Care values Cox® Technic! It’s gentle and helpful for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: B Vitamins Vital Through All Life Stages

West Palm Beach chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your West Palm Beach chiropractor will help you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is suggested to all pregnant women to decrease the risk of neural tube defects in babies.  Low vitamin B12 status is affiliated with an increased chance of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, making sure that optimal vitamin B status may be tougher 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 issues like stroke. Good news! Recently a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How is your B status? Shall we check that out together?  Chiropractic Care will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
