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

Gentle Baton Rouge 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 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 numerous different tests that flexion distraction increased patient Visual Analog Scale ratings of pain in addition to 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 Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation values Cox® Technic! It is gentle and useful for chronic back pain as well as neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many more spine pain conditions.

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

Baton Rouge chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Baton Rouge 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 chance of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, ensuring optimal vitamin B status may be tougher than for others. Older folks just don’t absorb it very well. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is related to conditions like stroke. Good news! Of late a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Let’s find out!  Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
