April 2020 Healthy News from Johnson Chiropractic

Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic is prepared 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 compared the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their next study is said to reveal if they reduce the need for 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 ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over six months.

Richmond 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 part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A new study using rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly subdue this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately, vitamin B12 deficiency is very common among type II diabetic patients who take metformin, a common diabetic drug. (3) Researchers found associations of anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Johnson Chiropractic urges our diabetic patients are urged to test their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
