Manage Musculoskeletal Pain To Avoid Chronic Disease

Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers helps ease musculoskeletal pain which helps prevent chronic disease. 


Musculoskeletal conditions, Baton Rouge neck and back 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|Baton Rouge chiropractic patients who have osteoarthritis appear have a higher risk of acquiring cardiovascular disease. The latest study reports that patients with musculoskeletal conditions enjoy a 17% higher risk of developing a chronic disease. (1) What do the study’s researchers recommend? Manage musculoskeletal diseases at the beginning in their development. Preventing and treating these musculoskeletal conditions early may help prevent the development of chronic diseases later. Just what the connection is between musculoskeletal conditions and chronic disease risk is not yet known. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers urges you to get a handle on your Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain issues sooner than later and is ready to help our Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

Baton Rouge 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 maintains the health of nerves and blood cells. Mild B12 deficiency may be undetected. More advanced B12 deficiency may result in anemia, fatigue, pale skin, appetite drop, constipation, diarrhea, heart palpitations, etc. One concerning 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 showed that B12 relieved low back pain and disability and lowered patients’ consumption of paracetamol for pain relief. (3) B12 deficiency may be avoided by eating meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs or taking B12 supplements. Talk with your Baton Rouge chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
