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

Gentle Tarrytown 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 reports 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 in addition to Oswestry Disability Index ratings of disability. The bottom line is that for chronic low back pain patients, flexion distraction offered greater improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s no wonder that Tarrytown Chiropractic appreciates Cox® Technic! It is gentle and useful for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many more spine pain conditions.

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

Tarrytown chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Tarrytown 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 affiliated with a higher chance of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, ensuring optimal vitamin B status may be harder than for others. Older folks just do not absorb it very well. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is connected to problems like stroke. Good news! Recently a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How is your B status? Let’s find out!  Tarrytown Chiropractic will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
