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

Gentle Watertown chiropractic treatment of chronic low back pain is superior.

GENTLE 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 increased 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 produced more improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s no wonder that Watertown Wellness Center 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.

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

Watertown chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Watertown chiropractor will help 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 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 do not absorb it properly. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is related to problems like stroke. Good news! Recently a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Let’s find out!  Watertown Wellness Center will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
