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!
Listen to this PODCAST with chiropractic back pain
specialist, Dr. Nike Taylor on The
Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as she shares

Spinal Pain Management.
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!
