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.

Manahawkin diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from addressing their B vitamin deficiency.

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!
