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

Gentle Manahawkin 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 conveys 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 is not surprising that Manahawkin Chiropractic Center appreciates 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.

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

Manahawkin chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Manahawkin chiropractor is here for 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 associated with a higher 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 don’t absorb it optimally. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is related to conditions like stroke. Good news! Of late a unique interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How is your B status? Shall we check that out together?  Manahawkin Chiropractic Center will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
