April 2020 Healthy News from The Novelli Wellness Center

Buffalo, NY chiropractic care at The Novelli Wellness 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 reports that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This report considered the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their next study is said to reveal if they reduce the use of 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 higher for chiropractic than PT patients. They deduced that chiropractic was shown 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.

Buffalo, NY diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from addressing their B vitamin deficiency.

Buffalo, NY CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation plays a role. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a part. A recent report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but significantly 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 associations of anemia and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) The Novelli Wellness Center recommends that our diabetic patients are encouraged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
