Healthy News October 2018 Manage Musculoskeletal Pain To Avoid Chronic Disease

Johnson Chiropractic helps relieve musculoskeletal pain which helps prevent chronic disease. 


Musculoskeletal conditions like Richmond back pain, 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|Richmond chiropractic patients with osteoarthritis seem to have an elevated risk of getting cardiovascular disease. The newest study reports that those who have musculoskeletal conditions have a 17% higher possibility of developing a chronic disease. (1) What do the study’s authors propose? Take care of musculoskeletal diseases early on in their development. Preventing and treating these musculoskeletal conditions early may help avoid the development of chronic diseases in the future. Just what the connection is between musculoskeletal conditions and chronic disease risk is yet unknown. Your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic encourages you to get a handle on your Richmond back pain and neck pain issues sooner than later and is here to help our Richmond 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 Richmond chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

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


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 produce anemia, tiredness, pale skin, appetite drop, constipation, diarrhea, heart palpitations, etc. One bothersome condition linked to B12 deficiency is subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord after nitrous oxide anesthesia. (2) Improving B12 level can be valuable. B12 may be received orally or via injection. One injection study showed that B12 relieved low back pain and disability and reduced patients’ use of paracetamol for pain relief. (3) B12 deficiency may be evaded by eating meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs or taking B12 supplements. Talk with your Richmond chiropractor about the best way for you to maintain a healthy B12 status!
