August 2020 Healthy News from The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Colorado Springs chronic pain patients can rely on The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 reports the latest recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Get care to be more consistent, encourage collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and finally improve patient outcomes. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and fibromyalgia – included acupuncture, spinal manipulation/mobilization, modalities (low level laser, electrical current), exercise (yoga), mind-body practices (meditation and cognitive therapy), lifestyle changes (diet, no smoking), and referral for co-management as necessary. (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 helpful for chronic low back pain. (2) Another research group studied 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 recommendations are all accessible within the personalized Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Colorado Springs chronic pain and osteoarthritis pain patients will want to investigate ginger for its many varied benefits not least of which is pain reduction.  

Colorado Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Colorado Springs 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-reducing effect holds promise and is safe according to all the latest studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in many studies. One specific study shared that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly and disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
