THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is made
for: low back pain! A new report in Healthcare journal
reports that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly
musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study considered the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical
therapy for low back pain. Interestingly, their up-coming
study is set 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 shown to be a cost-effective means
to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over 6 months. (1) Come to Vancouver Disc Centers to find out for

Vancouver 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 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 quite common among type II
diabetic patients who take metformin, a common diabetic
drug. (3) Researchers noted links to anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to test
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
