THE PANDEMIC OF LOW BACK PAIN
Here’s a pandemic chiropractic is built
for: low back pain! A recent report in Healthcare journal
shares 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. Interestingly, their next
study is said to determine if they reduce
the use of expensive 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 shown to be a cost-effective means
to ease low back pain in adults with at least 3 weeks of low back
pain over 6 months. (1) Come to Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka to find out for

Sitka 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
report about rats demonstrated that B vitamins
not only suppress but greatly overpower
this pain by curbing the proinflammatory cytokines. (2) Unfortunately,
vitamin B12 deficiency is very common in 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) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka urges our diabetic patients are encouraged to test
their vitamin B levels! B vitamins are very important for health!
