April 2020 Healthy News from Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn

Ashburn chiropractic care at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is prepared for the pandemic of low back pain.  

THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN

Here is a pandemic chiropractic is built for: low back pain! A new report in Healthcare journal reports 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. Interestingly, their up-coming study is said to reveal if they decrease the use of more costly health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For the moment, 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 confirmed to be a cost-effective way to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over six months.

Ashburn diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from addressing their B vitamin deficiency.

Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a challenge. Inflammation has a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A recent report about rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly suppress this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Sadly, vitamin B12 deficiency is very common in type II diabetic patients who take metformin, a common diabetic drug. (3) Researchers noted associations of anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn urges our diabetic patients are urged to test their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
