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


How’s Your Vitamin B12 Level?

Vitamin B12 keeps the nerves and blood cells healthy. Mild B12 deficiency may be unnoticed. More advanced B12 deficiency may produce anemia, fatigue, 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) Recovering B12 level can help. B12 may be delivered orally or via injection. One injection study revealed that B12 relieved low back pain and disability and reduced patients’ consumption of paracetamol for pain relief. (3) B12 deficiency may be avoided by having meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs or taking B12 supplements. Talk with your Carrolltown chiropractor about the best approach for you toward healthy B12 status!
