April 2020 Healthy News from The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR

Colorado Springs chiropractic care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 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.

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

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!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. James Cox, developer of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he imparts information on how the immune system works as well as how spinal manipulation affects neuropathic pain pathways.
