Gentle West Des Moines Chiropractic Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain; B Vitamins Are Important

Gentle West Des Moines 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 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 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 produced greater improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s no wonder that Executive Chiropractic of Iowa appreciates Cox® Technic! It’s gentle and effective for chronic back pain as well as neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many other spine pain conditions.

West Des Moines CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: B Vitamins Vital Through All Life Stages

West Des Moines chiropractic patients: Pay attention to your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your West Des Moines chiropractor will help you. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is recommended to all pregnant women to reduce the risk of neural tube defects in newborns.  Low vitamin B12 status is associated with a higher chance of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, making sure that ideal vitamin B status may be harder 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 problems like stroke. Good news! Of late a distinctive interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Shall we check that out together?  Executive Chiropractic of Iowa will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
