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!

specialist, Dr. Nike Taylor on The
Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as she describes

Spinal Pain Management.
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!
