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. (1) Come to Minster Chiropractic Center to find out for

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!
