THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here is a pandemic chiropractic is made for: low back pain! A new study in Healthcare journal shares that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study considered the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Interestingly, their next study is set to ascertain if they decrease the need for expensive health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, though, they found that the total average cost was $48.56 lower for chiropractic care than PT and the daily adjusted life years was 0.0043 higher for chiropractic than PT patients. They concluded that chiropractic was confirmed to be a cost-effective way to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over six months.

Easley CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A recent report about rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly subdue this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately, vitamin B12 deficiency is very common among type II diabetic patients who take metformin, a common diabetic drug. (3) Researchers found associations of anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Young Chiropractic urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
