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. (1) Come to Chiropractic Solutions to find out for

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!
