April 2020 Healthy News from Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre

Toronto chiropractic care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is well-equipped for 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.

Toronto diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from checking their B vitamin deficiency.


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!
