April 2020 Healthy News from Minster Chiropractic Center

Minster chiropractic care at Minster Chiropractic Center 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 shares that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This report compared the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Interestingly, their next study is set to ascertain if they reduce the need for 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 deduced that chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective means to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over 6 months.

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

Minster CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a role. A recent study using rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly suppress 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 found links to anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Minster Chiropractic Center urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to test their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
