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

Manahawkin chronic pain patients can rely on Manahawkin 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 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!

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!
