Watertown Wellness Center helps relieve musculoskeletal pain which helps prevent chronic disease. 

CARE FOR MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN EARLY TO AVOID CHRONIC DISEASES LATER

Musculoskeletal conditions, Watertown back pain, neck pain and osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, may lead to chronic disease like cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease or obesity. For example, those|Watertown chiropractic patients who experience osteoarthritis seem to have a higher risk of getting cardiovascular disease. The latest study states that those with musculoskeletal conditions enjoy a 17% increased chance of acquiring a chronic disease. (1) What do the study’s researchers propose? Address musculoskeletal diseases at the beginning 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 Watertown chiropractor at Watertown Wellness Center urges you to get a handle on your Watertown back pain and neck pain conditions sooner than later and is here to help our Watertown 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 Watertown chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

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

 
TIP OF THE MONTH:

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 bothersome 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 received orally or via injection. One injection study showed that B12 eased low back pain and disability and reduced 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 Watertown chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
