April 2020 Healthy News from New Roads Chiropractic Center

New Roads chiropractic care at New Roads Chiropractic Center is well-equipped for the pandemic of low back pain.  


Here is a pandemic chiropractic is built for: low back pain! A recent report in Healthcare journal presents that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study looked at the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their up-coming study is set to reveal if they reduce the need for expensive 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 concluded 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.

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


B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation plays a role. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a part. A recent report about rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly suppress this pain by curbing 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 links to anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center urges our diabetic patients are urged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
