April 2020 Healthy News from Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation

Carrolltown chiropractic care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is prepared for the pandemic of low back pain.  

THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN

Here is a pandemic chiropractic is built 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 report looked at the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Interestingly, their next study is said 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 greater for chiropractic than PT patients. They concluded that chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective way to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over six months.

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

Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is challenging. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a role. A new report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly subdue this pain by suppressing 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 noted associations of anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recommends that our diabetic patients are encouraged 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 shares information on how the immune system works as well as how spinal manipulation affects neuropathic pain pathways.
