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

Lynchburg chronic pain patients can rely on Palmer Chiropractic Center 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 recent study offers the latest recommendations on how to manage and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Make care more consistent, encourage collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient results. Palmer Chiropractic Center knows our Lynchburg chiropractic patients would like that! Plans to manage 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 reiterate and improve prior such studies. One group of researchers suggested reassurance, advice, education, spinal manipulation along with exercise, myofascial therapy or normal 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 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 recommendations are all accessible within the personalized Lynchburg chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

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

Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

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