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. (1) Come to Spine & Sports Rehab Center to find out for

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!
