April 2020 Healthy News from Malverne Health & Wellness

Malverne chiropractic care at Malverne Health & Wellness is well-equipped for the pandemic of low back pain.  


Here is a pandemic chiropractic is built for: low back pain! A recent study in Healthcare journal reports that “Low back pain is a pandemic and costly musculoskeletal condition in the United States.” This study looked at the cost-effectiveness of chiropractic and physical therapy for low back pain. Curiously, their next study is said to ascertain if they reduce the use of expensive health services like surgery, injections, and ER visits. For now, though, they found 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 determined that chiropractic was shown 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.

Malverne diabetic patients with neuropathy may benefit from addressing their B vitamin deficiency.


B Vitamins for Diabetic Neuropathy

Chronic diabetic neuropathic pain is tough. Inflammation plays a part. Spinal proinflammatory cytokines play a role. A new report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins not only suppress but greatly 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) Malverne Health & Wellness urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to test their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are quite important for health!
