August 2020 Healthy News from Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

St. Francisville chronic pain patients can rely on Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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 reports the latest recommendations on how to manage and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Get care to be more consistent, promote collaborative care among a variety of healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is sure that our St. Francisville chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) and fibromyalgia – involved acupuncture, spinal manipulation/mobilization, modalities (electrical current, laser), exercise (yoga), mind-body practices (meditation and cognitive therapy), lifestyle changes (diet, no smoking), and referral for co-management as needed. (1) These recommendations echo and improve prior such studies. One group of researchers offered 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 studied complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and reported that good/moderate quality evidence backed 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 accessible within the personalized St. Francisville chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

St. Francisville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

St. Francisville PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!

Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts! Pain-lowering effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant potential and its ability to inhibit prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-lowering effect holds promise and is safe according to all the latest studies. (4) Ginger swallowed orally has been safely done in several studies. One specific study reported that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
