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 up-coming
study is said to ascertain if they reduce
the need for expensive health services like
surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, though, they discovered
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 deduced 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. (1) Come to Soft Health and Healing Clinic to find out for

Brooks CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation has a role. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines play a role. A new
study using rats demonstrated that B vitamins
not only suppress but significantly subdue
this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Sadly,
vitamin B12 deficiency is very common among type II
diabetic patients who are prescribed metformin, a common diabetic
drug. (3) Researchers found links to anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Soft Health and Healing Clinic urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to test
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
