THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here is a pandemic chiropractic is made
for: low back pain! A recent report in Healthcare journal
shares that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly
musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This report considered the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical
therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their up-coming
study is set to ascertain if they decrease
the need for more costly health services like
surgery, injections, and ER visits. For the moment, though, they discovered
that the total average cost was $48.56 less for chiropractic care
than PT and the daily adjusted life years was 0.0043 higher for
chiropractic than PT patients. They deduced that
chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective way
to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over six months. (1) Come to Manahawkin Chiropractic Center to find out for

Manahawkin CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is challenging. Inflammation plays a role. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines have a role. A new
study using rats demonstrated that B vitamins
not only suppress but significantly overpower
this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Sadly,
vitamin B12 deficiency is very common in type II
diabetic patients who are prescribed metformin, a common diabetic
drug. (3) Researchers found associations of anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center urges our diabetic patients are urged to test
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
