CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION
A new study offers the latest recommendations on how to manage
and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Get care to
be more consistent, promote collaborative care
among various healthcare providers, and finally
improve patient results. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is sure that
our Auburn chiropractic patients would like that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck
pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) and
fibromyalgia – incorporated 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 enhance
prior such studies. One set of researchers proposed
reassurance, advice, education, spinal manipulation along with exercise,
myofascial therapy or usual medical care when helpful
for chronic low back pain. (2) Another research group studied
complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and stated
that good/moderate quality evidence backed 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 suggestions are all accessible
within the individualized Auburn 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.
Auburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Auburn PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!
Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts!
Pain-lowering effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant capability
and its capacity to inhibit prostaglandins and
pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-reducing effect
holds promise and is safe according to all the most recent
studies. (4) Ginger swallowed orally has been safely done in several
studies. One particular study explained
that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly and
disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger,
holds such zesty promise!
