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

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

GENTLE IS BEST

Chronic low back pain responds 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 numerous 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 produced more improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It is no wonder that Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn values Cox® Technic! It is gentle and helpful for chronic back pain as well as neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

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

Ashburn chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Ashburn chiropractor is here for you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is recommended 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 optimal vitamin B status may be tougher than for others. Older folks just do not absorb it very well. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is related to issues like stroke. Good news! Recently a unique interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How is your B status? Shall we check that out together?  Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
