THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is made
for: low back pain! A new study in Healthcare journal
presents 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. Interestingly, their up-coming
study is set to ascertain if they decrease
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 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 confirmed to be a cost-effective means
to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over 6 months. (1) Come to Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries to find out for

Manchester CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation plays a role. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines have a role. A recent
report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins
not only suppress but significantly overpower
this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately,
vitamin B12 deficiency is very common among type II
diabetic patients who are prescribed metformin, a common diabetic
drug. (3) Researchers noted links to anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries recommends
that our diabetic patients are urged to test
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
