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. (1) Come to Johnson Chiropractic to find out for

Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
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!
