THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is made
for: low back pain! A new report in Healthcare journal
shares 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. Curiously, their up-coming
study is set to reveal if they reduce
the use of more costly health services like
surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, 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 greater for
chiropractic than PT patients. They concluded that
chiropractic was confirmed to be a cost-effective means
to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over 6 months. (1) Come to The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR to find out for

Colorado Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is challenging. Inflammation plays a role. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines play a role. A new
study using rats showed that B vitamins
not only suppress but greatly overpower
this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately,
vitamin B12 deficiency is very 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to test
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
