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

Burlington and Hamilton chronic pain patients can rely on Spinal Care Clinic 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 recent study presents the most up-to-date recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among a variety of healthcare providers, and finally improve patient outcomes. Spinal Care Clinic knows our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) 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 suggested reassurance, advice, education, spinal manipulation along with exercise, myofascial therapy or normal 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-practiced chiropractic skill while the other suggestions are all available within the personalized Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Burlington and Hamilton 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 inhibit prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-reducing effect holds promise and is safe by all the latest studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in many studies. One particular study shared that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly and disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
