Gentle Fort Wayne Chiropractic Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain; B Vitamins Are ImportantGENTLE IS BEST Chronic low back pain reacts 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 several different tests that flexion distraction improved 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 offered more improvements in pain and function than HVLA.

Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: B Vitamins Vital Through All Life Stages Fort Wayne chiropractic patients: Take notice of 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 decrease the risk of neural tube defects in newborns. Low vitamin B12 status is affiliated with an increased risk 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 optimally. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is related to issues like stroke. Good news! Of late a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Shall we check that out together?
