Sitka 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 unnoticed. More advanced B12 deficiency may result in anemia, tiredness, 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) Recovering B12 status can be valuable. B12 may be received orally or via injection. One injection study revealed that B12 eased low back pain and disability and reduced patients’ consumption 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 Sitka chiropractor about the best way for you to maintain a healthy B12 status!
