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

Gentle Colorado Springs 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 numerous different tests that flexion distraction improved 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 The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR appreciates Cox® Technic! It is gentle and useful for chronic back pain as well as neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

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

Colorado Springs chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Colorado Springs chiropractor will help 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 an increased chance 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 do not absorb it properly. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is connected to issues like stroke. Good news! Recently a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Shall we check that out together?  The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
