April 2020 Healthy News from Palmer Chiropractic Center

Lynchburg chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Center is well-equipped for the pandemic of low back pain.  

THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN

Here is a pandemic chiropractic is made for: low back pain! A new report in Healthcare journal reports that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study considered the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their next study is said to determine if they decrease the need for expensive 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 higher for chiropractic than PT patients. They concluded that chiropractic was confirmed to be a cost-effective way to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over six months.

Lynchburg diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from addressing their B vitamin deficiency.

Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation has a role. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a role. A new study using rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly overpower this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Sadly, vitamin B12 deficiency is very common among 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center recommends that our diabetic patients are encouraged to test their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
