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

Gentle Fort Wayne 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 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 several different tests that flexion distraction improved 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 more improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s not surprising that Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc values Cox® Technic! It is gentle and effective for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many more spine pain conditions.

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

Fort Wayne chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is here for 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, making sure that optimal vitamin B status may be harder than for others. Older folks just don’t absorb it optimally. 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) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How is your B status? Shall we check that out together?  Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
