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

Plainville chronic pain patients can rely on Layden Chiropractic 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 most up-to-date recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient results. Layden Chiropractic is sure that our Plainville chiropractic patients would like that! Plans to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and fibromyalgia – incorporated 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 needed. (1) These recommendations reiterate and improve prior such studies. One set 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 backed using 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 available within the individualized Plainville chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

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

Plainville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Plainville 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 ability 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 taken 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!
