August 2020 Healthy News from Chiropractic Care: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

West Palm Beach chronic pain patients can rely on Chiropractic Care for pain relief with our chiropractic treatment plan that follows today’s research guidelines and includes spinal manipulation.

CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION

A new study offers the most up-to-date recommendations on how to manage and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Chiropractic Care knows our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients would like that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) and fibromyalgia – involved acupuncture, spinal manipulation/mobilization, modalities (low level laser, electrical current), exercise (yoga), mind-body practices (meditation and cognitive therapy), lifestyle changes (diet, no smoking), and referral for co-management as necessary. (1) These recommendations reiterate and enhance prior such studies. One set of researchers proposed reassurance, advice, education, spinal manipulation along with exercise, myofascial therapy or usual medical care when helpful for chronic low back pain. (2) Another research group reviewed complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and reported that good/moderate quality evidence supported using spinal manipulation/mobilization, yoga, and acupuncture for chronic low back pain and neck pain. (3) Spinal manipulation is a well-honed chiropractic skill while the other suggestions are all available within the individualized West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Listen to this PODCAST with chiropractic back pain specialist, Dr. Nike Taylor on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as she shares a chronic back pain patient’s journey to pain relief with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

West Palm Beach chronic pain and osteoarthritis pain patients will want to investigate ginger for its many varied benefits not least of which is pain reduction.  

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

West Palm Beach PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!

Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts! Pain-reducing effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant potential and its capacity to stop prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-reducing effect holds promise and is safe according to all the most recent studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in many studies. One particular study reported that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
