CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION
A recent study reports the most
up-to-date recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Get care to
be more consistent, promote collaborative care
among various healthcare providers, and ultimately
improve patient outcomes. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows
our Manahawkin chiropractic patients would like that! Plans
to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck
pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) 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 reiterate and enhance
prior such studies. One group of researchers offered
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 stated
that good/moderate quality evidence supported 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 accessible
within the personalized Manahawkin chiropractic
treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

specialist, Dr. Nike Taylor on The
Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as she describes

Spinal Pain Management.
Manahawkin CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Manahawkin 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 capacity to stop prostaglandins and
pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-lowering effect
holds promise and is safe according to all the most recent
studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in several
studies. One specific study shared
that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger,
holds such zesty promise!
