THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here is a pandemic chiropractic is made for: low back pain! A recent study in Healthcare journal reports 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 set to determine if they decrease the use of more costly health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For the moment, 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 determined that chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective means to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over six months.

Augusta CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a challenge. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines have a role. A new report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly suppress this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Sadly, vitamin B12 deficiency is quite 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) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic recommends that our diabetic patients are urged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
