April 2020 Healthy News from Layden Chiropractic

Plainville chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic 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 study in Healthcare journal shares that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This report looked at the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their next study is set to determine if they decrease the need for more costly health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For the moment, 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 deduced that chiropractic was confirmed 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.

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

Plainville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is challenging. Inflammation has a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a part. A recent study using rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly suppress this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately, vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common in type II diabetic patients who take metformin, a common diabetic drug. (3) Researchers found links to anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Layden Chiropractic recommends that our diabetic patients are urged to test their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
