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 less 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. (1) Come to Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center to find out for

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!
