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

San Jose chronic pain patients can rely on Chiropractic Solutions 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 new study offers the most up-to-date 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. Chiropractic Solutions knows our San Jose chiropractic patients would like 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 necessary. (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 stated 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 San Jose chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

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

San Jose CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

San Jose 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-lowering 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 specific study reported that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
