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

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


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 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 more improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s no wonder that OrthoIllinois Chiropractic appreciates Cox® Technic! It is gentle and effective for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

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

McHenry chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your McHenry chiropractor is here for you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is suggested to all pregnant women to decrease the risk of neural tube defects in newborns.  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 very well. A genetic variant (MRHFR) that is a common folate B9 polymorphism is connected to conditions like stroke. Good news! Of late a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Let’s find out!  OrthoIllinois Chiropractic will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
