Healthy News October 2018 Manage Musculoskeletal Pain To Avoid Chronic Disease

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


Musculoskeletal conditions like McHenry 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 instance, those|McHenry chiropractic patients who have osteoarthritis seem to have a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The newest study states that patients with musculoskeletal conditions have a 17% increased risk of acquiring a chronic disease. (1) What do the study’s authors suggest? Manage musculoskeletal diseases early on in their development. Preventing 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 McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic urges you to address your McHenry back pain and neck pain conditions sooner than later and is ready to help our McHenry 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 McHenry chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

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


How Is Your Vitamin B12 Status?

Vitamin B12 keeps the nerves and blood cells healthy. Mild B12 deficiency may be unnoticed. More advanced B12 deficiency may result in anemia, fatigue, 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) Improving B12 status can help. B12 may be delivered orally or via injection. One injection study revealed that B12 eased low back pain and disability and lowered patients’ consumption 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 McHenry chiropractor about the best way for you to maintain a healthy B12 status!
