April 2020 Healthy News from Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic

Eugene chiropractic care at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is prepared for the pandemic of low back pain.  

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 need for expensive 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.

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

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!
