The latest study states that patients with musculoskeletal conditions enjoy a 17% higher risk of developing a chronic disease. (1) What do the study’s researchers propose? Address musculoskeletal diseases early on in their development.

Vancouver chiropractic care may involve 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 result in anemia, tiredness, pale skin, appetite decrease, 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 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 evaded by eating meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs or taking B12 supplements. Talk with your Vancouver chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
