April 2020 Healthy News from Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office

Groton chiropractic care at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is prepared for the pandemic of low back pain.  

THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN

Here is a pandemic chiropractic is made for: low back pain! A recent study in Healthcare journal reports 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 next study is said to determine if they decrease the use of more costly health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, 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 greater for chiropractic than PT patients. They determined that chiropractic was confirmed to be a cost-effective means to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over six months.

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

Groton CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a challenge. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a part. A recent study using 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 in type II diabetic patients who take metformin, a common diabetic drug. (3) Researchers noted associations of anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office recommends that our diabetic patients are urged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
