April 2020 Healthy News from Chiropractic Care

West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Chiropractic Care is prepared for the pandemic of low back pain.  

THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN

Here’s 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 next study is said to ascertain if they decrease the use of expensive health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, 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 greater for chiropractic than PT patients. They determined that chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective way to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over 6 months.

West Palm Beach diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from checking their B vitamin deficiency.

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a challenge. Inflammation has a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A new report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly suppress this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately, 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) Chiropractic Care recommends that our diabetic patients are encouraged to test their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
