August 2020 Healthy News from Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Carrolltown chronic pain patients can rely on Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation for pain relief with our chiropractic treatment plan that adheres to today’s research guidelines and includes spinal manipulation.

CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION

A recent study offers the most up-to-date recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among a variety of healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is sure that our Carrolltown chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) 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 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 beneficial 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 available within the personalized Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Carrolltown 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 ability to inhibit prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-reducing effect holds promise and is safe by all the latest studies. (4) Ginger swallowed orally has been safely done in many studies. One particular study shared that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
