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

Gentle Vancouver 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 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 numerous different tests that flexion distraction increased patient Visual Analog Scale ratings of pain as well as 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 Vancouver Spine Care Centre appreciates Cox® Technic! It is gentle and effective for chronic back pain as well as neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

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

Vancouver chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Vancouver chiropractor is here for 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 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 properly. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is related to conditions 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?  Vancouver Spine Care Centre will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
