August 2020 Healthy News from Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Baton Rouge chronic pain patients can rely on Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 presents the most up-to-date recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among a variety of healthcare providers, and finally improve patient results. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is sure that our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients would like that! Plans to manage 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 needed. (1) These recommendations echo and enhance prior such studies. One group of researchers suggested 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 reviewed complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and stated 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-honed chiropractic skill while the other suggestions are all accessible within the personalized Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Baton Rouge 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 according to 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!
