April 2020 Healthy News from Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.

Auburn chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is well-equipped 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 study in Healthcare journal presents that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This report looked at the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their up-coming study is set to determine if they decrease the use of expensive health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For the moment, 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 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.

Auburn diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from addressing their B vitamin deficiency.

Auburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a challenge. Inflammation has a role. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A recent study using rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly subdue 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 found links to anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. recommends that our diabetic patients are urged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
