April 2020 Healthy News from Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center

Paramus chiropractic care at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 study in Healthcare journal presents that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This report looked at the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Interestingly, their up-coming study is set 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 lower 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 confirmed 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.

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

Paramus CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is a challenge. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a role. A recent report about rats showed that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly suppress this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately, vitamin B12 deficiency is very common in type II diabetic patients who take metformin, a common diabetic drug. (3) Researchers found links to anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center recommends that our diabetic patients are urged to test their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
