THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here is a pandemic chiropractic is made
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 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 use of more costly health services like
surgery, injections, and ER visits. For the moment, though, they discovered
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 deduced that
chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective way
to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over six months. (1) Come to Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic to find out for

Eugene CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation has a role. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines play a part. A new
study using rats demonstrated that B vitamins
not only suppress but greatly subdue
this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Sadly,
vitamin B12 deficiency is very common among 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) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic recommends
that our diabetic patients are encouraged to check
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
