THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is built
for: low back pain! A recent 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. Interestingly, their next
study is set to reveal if they reduce
the need for expensive health services like
surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, 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 greater for
chiropractic than PT patients. They concluded that
chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective means
to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over 6 months. (1) Come to Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre to find out for

Toronto CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a
challenge. Inflammation has a part. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A recent
study using rats showed that B vitamins
not only suppress but greatly 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 noted associations of anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre urges our diabetic patients are urged to check
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
