THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here is a pandemic chiropractic is built
for: low back pain! A new report in Healthcare journal
reports that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly
musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This report compared the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical
therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their next
study is set to reveal 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 greater for
chiropractic than PT patients. They determined that
chiropractic was confirmed to be a cost-effective means
to help adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over six months. (1) Come to Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic to find out for

Montreal CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
B Vitamins for Diabetic Nerve Pain
Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation has a part. Spinal
proinflammatory cytokines have a part. A recent
study using rats showed that B vitamins
not only suppress but significantly suppress
this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately,
vitamin B12 deficiency is very common among type II
diabetic patients who are prescribed metformin, a common diabetic
drug. (3) Researchers found links to anemia
and neuropathy with metformin use in diabetic patients. (4) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to check
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
