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? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care
among a variety of healthcare providers, and finally
improve patient results. Pflugerville Wellness Center is sure that
our Pflugerville chiropractic patients would appreciate 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 (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 enhance
prior such studies. One set of researchers offered
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 reported
that good/moderate quality evidence backed the use of
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 Pflugerville chiropractic
treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!
Listen to this PODCAST with chiropractic back pain
specialist, Dr. Nike Taylor on The
Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as she describes

Spinal Pain Management.
Pflugerville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Pflugerville 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 stop 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 several
studies. One particular study explained
that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly and
disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger,
holds such zesty promise!
