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. (1) Come to Satterwhite Chiropractic to find out for

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 in 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!
