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

Williamson chronic pain patients can rely on Apple Country Chiropractic 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 presents the latest recommendations on how to manage and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Get care to be more consistent, encourage collaborative care among a variety of healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Apple Country Chiropractic is sure that our Williamson 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 necessary. (1) These recommendations echo and enhance prior such studies. One group of researchers proposed 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 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 available within the individualized Williamson 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 describes a chronic back pain patient’s journey to pain relief with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Williamson 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.  

Williamson CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Williamson PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!

Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts! Pain-reducing effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant capability and its ability to inhibit 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 many studies. One particular study shared that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
