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

Gentle Groton 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 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 offered greater improvements in pain and function than HVLA. (1) It’s not surprising that Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office values 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.

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

Groton chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your Groton 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 affiliated with an increased chance 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 connected to problems like stroke. Good news! Of late a unique interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) decreases the risk of hypertension. (2) How’s your B status? Shall we check that out together?  Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office will be ready to address any concerns you may have about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
