April 2020 Healthy News from Apple Country Chiropractic

Williamson chiropractic care at Apple Country Chiropractic is well-equipped for the pandemic of low back pain.  

THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN

Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is built for: low back pain! A new study in Healthcare journal presents that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study compared the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Interestingly, their up-coming study is said to reveal if they reduce 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 lower 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 means to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over 6 months.

Williamson diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from checking their B vitamin deficiency.

Williamson CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is challenging. Inflammation has a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A recent study using rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly suppress this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately, vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common among type II diabetic patients who take metformin, a common diabetic drug. (3) Researchers noted associations of anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic recommends that our diabetic patients are encouraged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
