THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is made
for: low back pain! A new study in Healthcare journal
shares that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly
musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study looked
at the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical
therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their up-coming
study is said to determine if they reduce
the use of more costly 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 higher for
chiropractic than PT patients. They concluded that
chiropractic was confirmed to be a cost-effective way
to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over 6 months. (1) Come to Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center to find out for

Pensacola CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is challenging. Inflammation plays a role. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines have a role. A new
report about rats showed that B vitamins
not only suppress but significantly suppress
this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately,
vitamin B12 deficiency is very common among type II
diabetic patients who are prescribed metformin, a common diabetic
drug. (3) Researchers noted links to anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to test
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
