CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION
A new study reports the latest recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Get care to
be more consistent, promote collaborative care
among various healthcare providers, and finally
improve patient results. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is sure that
our Tonawanda chiropractic patients would like that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck
pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and
fibromyalgia – included 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 improve
prior such studies. One set of researchers offered
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 stated
that good/moderate quality evidence supported the use of
spinal manipulation/mobilization, yoga, and acupuncture for chronic low back
pain and neck pain. (3) Spinal manipulation is a well-honed chiropractic
skill while the other recommendations are all accessible
within the personalized Tonawanda 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

Tonawanda CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Tonawanda PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!
Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts!
Pain-reducing effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant capability
and its capacity to inhibit prostaglandins and
pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-lowering effect
holds promise and is safe according to all the latest
studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in several
studies. One particular study explained
that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger,
holds such zesty promise!
