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

Gentle La Grande 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 several different tests that flexion distraction increased patient Visual Analog Scale ratings of pain along with 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 Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC values Cox® Technic! It is gentle and useful for chronic back pain in addition to neck pain, sciatica, radicular arm pain and many more spine pain conditions.

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

La Grande chiropractic patients: Take notice of your folate and B-vitamin status throughout life! Your La Grande chiropractor is here for 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 a higher risk of cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. For some people, making sure that optimal 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 related to conditions like stroke. Good news! Recently a unique interaction with riboflavin (vitamin B2) reduces the risk of hypertension. (2) How is your B status? Let’s find out!  Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC will be ready to answer all your questions about vitamin B and spinal nutrition.
