THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is made
for: low back pain! A new study in Healthcare journal
reports that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly
musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study looked
at the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical
therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their next
study is set to ascertain if they reduce
the need for expensive health services like
surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, though, they found
that the total average cost was $48.56 lower for chiropractic care
than PT and the daily adjusted life years was 0.0043 greater for
chiropractic than PT patients. They concluded that
chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective means
to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over 6 months. (1) Come to Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc to find out for

Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation has a part. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A recent
report about rats showed that B vitamins
not only suppress but significantly subdue
this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately,
vitamin B12 deficiency is very common in type II
diabetic patients who are prescribed metformin, a common diabetic
drug. (3) Researchers found associations of anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc recommends
that our diabetic patients are urged to test
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
