August 2020 Healthy News from Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Pensacola chronic pain patients can rely on Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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 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!

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!
