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

Gentle Ottawa chiropractic treatment of chronic low back pain is best.

GENTLE IS BEST

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 is not surprising that The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider values Cox® Technic! It’s gentle and useful for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many more spine pain conditions.

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

Ottawa chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Ottawa chiropractor will help 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 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 properly. 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) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How is your B status? Let’s find out!  The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
