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

Gentle Brooks chiropractic treatment of chronic low back pain is superior.

GENTLE IS BEST

Chronic low back pain reacts 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 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 greater improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It is not surprising that Soft Health and Healing Clinic values Cox® Technic! It is gentle and helpful for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many more spine pain conditions.

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

Brooks chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Brooks 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 chance of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, ensuring ideal vitamin B status may be tougher than for others. Older folks just don’t absorb it properly. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is connected to problems 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?  Soft Health and Healing Clinic will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
