April 2020 Healthy News from Chiropractic Solutions

San Jose chiropractic care at Chiropractic Solutions 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 report in Healthcare journal shares 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 up-coming study is set to reveal if they decrease the need for expensive health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, 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.

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

San Jose 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 report about rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly subdue this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Sadly, vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common in 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) Chiropractic Solutions urges our diabetic patients are urged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. James Cox, developer of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he imparts research on how the immune system works as well as how spinal manipulation affects neuropathic pain pathways.
