April 2020 Healthy News from Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc

Fort Wayne chiropractic care at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is prepared for the pandemic of low back pain.  


Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is built for: low back pain! A recent 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. Curiously, their next study is said to reveal if they decrease the need for expensive health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For the moment, 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 higher for chiropractic than PT patients. They concluded that chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective way to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over 6 months.

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


B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a role. A recent report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly overpower this pain by curbing 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 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 check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
