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. (1) Come to Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn to find out for

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!
