Healthy News – October 2018 – Manage Musculoskeletal Pain To Avoid Chronic Disease

Chiropractic Care helps ease musculoskeletal pain which helps prevent chronic disease. 

CARE FOR MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN EARLY TO AVOID CHRONIC DISEASES LATER

Musculoskeletal conditions, Chicago back and neck pain and osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, may lead to chronic disease like cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease or obesity. For example, those|Chicago chiropractic patients with osteoarthritis seem to have an elevated risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The latest study states that those with musculoskeletal conditions enjoy a 17% increased risk of acquiring a chronic disease. (1) What do the study’s authors propose? Take care of musculoskeletal diseases at the beginning in their development. Preventing and treating these musculoskeletal conditions in a timely fashion may help avoid the development of chronic diseases later. Just what the connection is between musculoskeletal conditions and chronic disease risk is not yet known. Your Chicago chiropractor at Chiropractic Care urges you to take care of your Chicago back pain and neck pain issues sooner than later and is here to help our Chicago chiropractic patients!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Vincent Pankonin on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about chronic back pain and its Chicago chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

Chicago chiropractic care may include checking the level of vitamin B12 since it may influence back pain relief. 

 
TIP OF THE MONTH:

How’s Your Vitamin B12 Level?

Vitamin B12 keeps the nerves and blood cells healthy. Mild B12 deficiency may be undetected. More advanced B12 deficiency may result in anemia, tiredness, pale skin, appetite drop, constipation, diarrhea, heart palpitations, etc. One bothersome condition related to B12 deficiency is subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord after nitrous oxide anesthesia. (2) Recovering B12 status can help. B12 may be received orally or via injection. One injection study revealed that B12 relieved low back pain and disability and reduced patients’ use of paracetamol for pain relief. (3) B12 deficiency may be evaded by having meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs or taking B12 supplements. Talk with your Chicago chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
