April 2020 Healthy News from Back And Neck Care Center

Severna Park chiropractic care at Back And Neck Care Center is well-equipped for the pandemic of low back pain.  


Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is built for: low back pain! A recent report in Healthcare journal reports 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. Interestingly, their next study is said to determine if they decrease the need for expensive 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 higher 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.

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


B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation has a role. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a role. A new report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly overpower this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Sadly, vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common in 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) Back And Neck Care Center urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
