The latest report reports that those with musculoskeletal conditions enjoy a 17% increased risk of acquiring a chronic disease. (1) What do the study’s researchers suggest? Address musculoskeletal diseases early on 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.

TIP OF THE MONTH:

How Is 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, fatigue, 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) Recovering B12 status can help. B12 may be delivered orally or via injection. One injection study revealed that B12 relieved low back pain and disability and lowered patients’ use 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 Williamson chiropractor about the best way for you to maintain a healthy B12 status!
