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. (1) Come to Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation to find out for

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 curbing 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!
