April 2020 Healthy News from Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center

Pensacola chiropractic care at Pensacola Spinal Rehab 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 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.

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

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!
