April 2020 Healthy News from Soft Health and Healing Clinic

Brooks chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic is prepared for the pandemic of low back pain.  

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.

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

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!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. James Cox, developer of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he shares information on how the immune system works as well as how spinal manipulation influences neuropathic pain pathways.
