Gentle Southern New Hampshire Chiropractic Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain; B Vitamins Are Important

Gentle Southern New Hampshire chiropractic treatment of chronic low back pain is best.


Chronic low back pain reacts 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 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 greater improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It is no wonder that New Hampshire Spine and Sport appreciates Cox® Technic! It’s gentle and helpful for chronic back pain as well as neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

Southern New Hampshire CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: B Vitamins Vital Through All Life Stages

Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor will help you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is recommended to all pregnant women to decrease the risk of neural tube defects in newborns.  Low vitamin B12 status is associated with an increased risk of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, ensuring optimal vitamin B status may be harder 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 conditions 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!  New Hampshire Spine and Sport will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
