April 2020 Healthy News from Spine & Sports Rehab Center

Baton Rouge  chiropractic care at Spine & Sports Rehab Center is well-equipped for the pandemic of low back pain.  

THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN

Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is built for: low back pain! A new report in Healthcare journal reports that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study considered the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Interestingly, their up-coming 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 found that the total average cost was $48.56 less 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 help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over 6 months.

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

Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is challenging. Inflammation has a role. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a part. A recent report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly subdue this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Sadly, vitamin B12 deficiency is very common among type II diabetic patients who are prescribed metformin, a common diabetic drug. (3) Researchers noted associations of anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Spine & Sports Rehab Center urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
