THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here is a pandemic chiropractic is built
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 report 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 more costly 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 greater for
chiropractic than PT patients. They deduced that
chiropractic was confirmed to be a cost-effective way
to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over six months. (1) Come to Amelia Chiropractic Clinic to find out for

Fernandina Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a
challenge. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines play a part. A new
study using rats showed that B vitamins
not only suppress but significantly overpower
this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately,
vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common among type II
diabetic patients who are prescribed metformin, a common diabetic
drug. (3) Researchers noted associations of anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic recommends
that our diabetic patients are encouraged to check
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
