Gentle St. Francisville Chiropractic Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain; B Vitamins Are Important

Gentle St. Francisville chiropractic treatment of chronic low back pain is superior.


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 offered more improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It is no wonder that Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville appreciates Cox® Technic! It’s gentle and effective for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

St. Francisville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: B Vitamins Vital Through All Life Stages

St. Francisville chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your St. Francisville chiropractor is here for you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is recommended to all pregnant women to reduce the risk of neural tube defects in babies.  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 tougher 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 issues like stroke. Good news! Recently a unique interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How is your B status? Let’s find out!  Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
