April 2020 Healthy News from Hollstrom & Associates Inc

Largo chiropractic care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc is prepared for the pandemic of low back pain.  


Here is a pandemic chiropractic is built for: low back pain! A recent study in Healthcare journal presents that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study considered the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their up-coming study is set to ascertain if they decrease the need for more costly health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, 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 higher for chiropractic than PT patients. They deduced that chiropractic was shown to be a cost-effective way to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back pain over six months.

Largo diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from checking their B vitamin deficiency.


B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation plays a role. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A new study using rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly subdue this pain by suppressing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately, vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common among 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc urges our diabetic patients are urged to check their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
