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

Gentle Augusta chiropractic treatment of chronic low back pain 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 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 offered greater improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s not surprising that Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic appreciates Cox® Technic! It’s gentle and useful for chronic back pain as well as neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

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

Augusta chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Augusta chiropractor is here for you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is suggested to all pregnant women to reduce the risk of neural tube defects in newborns.  Low vitamin B12 status is associated with a higher risk of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, ensuring ideal vitamin B status may be harder than for others. Older folks just don’t absorb it properly. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is related to issues like stroke. Good news! Of late a unique interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Let’s find out!  Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
