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

Gentle Baton Rouge 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 several 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 greater improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s no wonder that Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers 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.

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

Baton Rouge chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Baton Rouge chiropractor is here for you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is suggested to all pregnant women to decrease 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, 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 connected to issues like stroke. Good news! Of late a unique interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Let’s find out!  Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
