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. (1) Come to Hollstrom & Associates Inc to find out for

Largo CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
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!
