Manage Musculoskeletal Pain To Avoid Chronic Disease

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


Musculoskeletal conditions like Richmond 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 instance, those|Richmond chiropractic patients with osteoarthritis seem to have an elevated risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The newest report states that patients with musculoskeletal conditions have a 17% higher risk of developing a chronic disease. (1) What do the study’s authors propose? Take care of musculoskeletal diseases at the beginning in their development. Averting 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 address your Richmond back pain and neck pain conditions 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 Is Your Vitamin B12 Level?

Vitamin B12 maintains the health of nerves and blood cells. Mild B12 deficiency may be unnoticed. More advanced B12 deficiency may produce anemia, tiredness, pale skin, appetite drop, constipation, diarrhea, heart palpitations, etc. One concerning condition linked to B12 deficiency is subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord after nitrous oxide anesthesia. (2) Improving 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’ consumption 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 Richmond chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
