August 2020 Healthy News from New Roads Chiropractic Center: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

New Roads chronic pain patients can rely on New Roads Chiropractic Center for pain relief with our chiropractic treatment plan that adheres to today’s research guidelines and includes spinal manipulation.

CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION

A recent study offers the most up-to-date recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Get care to be more consistent, encourage collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient results. New Roads Chiropractic Center knows our New Roads chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Plans to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) and fibromyalgia – incorporated 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 needed. (1) These recommendations reiterate and improve prior such studies. One set of researchers suggested reassurance, advice, education, spinal manipulation along with exercise, myofascial therapy or usual medical care when beneficial for chronic low back pain. (2) Another research group reviewed complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and stated 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-practiced chiropractic skill while the other recommendations are all accessible within the individualized New Roads chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

New Roads chronic pain and osteoarthritis pain patients will want to look in to ginger for its many varied benefits not least of which is pain reduction.  

New Roads CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

New Roads 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 ability to stop prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-reducing effect holds promise and is safe by all the latest studies. (4) Ginger swallowed orally has been safely done in several studies. One specific study reported that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly and disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
