April 2020 Healthy News from Spinal Care Clinic

Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic is prepared for the pandemic of low back pain.  

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 yourself!

Burlington and Hamilton diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from addressing their B vitamin deficiency.

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 report about 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!
