April 2020 Healthy News from Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville

St. Francisville chiropractic care at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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 new 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. Interestingly, their up-coming study is set to reveal if they reduce the use of expensive 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 deduced that chiropractic was confirmed 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.

St. Francisville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a challenge. Inflammation has a role. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines have a role. A recent study using rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly overpower this pain by curbing 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) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville urges our diabetic patients are urged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
