Healthy News October 2018 Manage Musculoskeletal Pain To Avoid Chronic Disease

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps relieve musculoskeletal pain which helps prevent chronic disease. 


Musculoskeletal conditions, Colorado Springs neck and back pain and osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, may precede chronic disease like cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease or obesity. For example, those|Colorado Springs chiropractic patients who experience osteoarthritis seem to have an elevated risk of getting cardiovascular disease. The latest report reports that patients with musculoskeletal conditions enjoy a 17% higher chance of developing a chronic disease. (1) What do the study’s researchers recommend? Manage musculoskeletal diseases early on in their development. Averting and treating these musculoskeletal conditions in a timely fashion may help prevent the development of chronic diseases later. Just what the connection is between musculoskeletal conditions and chronic disease risk is yet unknown. Your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR encourages you to get a handle on your Colorado Springs back pain and neck pain conditions sooner than later and is ready to help our Colorado Springs 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 Colorado Springs chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

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


How’s Your Vitamin B12 Status?

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) Recovering B12 level can be valuable. B12 may be received orally or via injection. One injection study showed that B12 eased low back pain and disability and lowered patients’ use of paracetamol for pain relief. (3) B12 deficiency may be avoided by having meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs or taking B12 supplements. Talk with your Colorado Springs chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
