THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here is a pandemic chiropractic is made
for: low back pain! A recent report in Healthcare journal
presents that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly
musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This report considered the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical
therapy for low back pain. Interestingly, their next
study is said to reveal if they reduce
the use of more costly health services like
surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, 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 greater for
chiropractic than PT patients. They deduced that
chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective way
to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over six months. (1) Come to Spinal Care Clinic to find out for

Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines have a role. A recent
study using rats showed that B vitamins
not only suppress but significantly overpower
this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately,
vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common among type II
diabetic patients who take metformin, a common diabetic
drug. (3) Researchers noted links to anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Spinal Care Clinic recommends
that our diabetic patients are encouraged to test
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
