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 various healthcare providers, and finally
improve patient results. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is sure that
our Pensacola 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 (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 echo and improve
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 reviewed
complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and reported
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 Pensacola 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.
Pensacola CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Pensacola 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-reducing effect
holds promise and is safe by all the latest
studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in many
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!
