April 2020 Healthy News from Moses Chiropractic

West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Moses Chiropractic is well-equipped 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 reports that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study looked at the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Interestingly, their up-coming study is set to determine if they decrease the use of expensive health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, though, they found that the total average cost was $48.56 lower for chiropractic care than PT and the daily adjusted life years was 0.0043 greater for chiropractic than PT patients. They determined that chiropractic was confirmed to be a cost-effective way to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over 6 months.

West Palm Beach diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from checking their B vitamin deficiency.

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation has a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a part. A recent study using rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly 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 links to anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Moses Chiropractic recommends that our diabetic patients are urged to test their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
