April 2020 Healthy News from Satterwhite Chiropractic

Oxford chiropractic care at Satterwhite Chiropractic is well-equipped for the pandemic of low back pain.  

THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN

Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is built 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 report considered the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their next study is set to determine if they decrease the need for more costly health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For the moment, though, they discovered 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 determined 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.

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

Oxford CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a challenge. Inflammation has a role. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a part. A new study using rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly overpower this pain by suppressing 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 associations of anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic recommends that our diabetic patients are encouraged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
