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. (1) Come to Chiropractic Care to find out for

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 quite 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 quite important for health!
