August 2020 Healthy News from Pflugerville Wellness Center: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Pflugerville chronic pain patients can rely on Pflugerville Wellness 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 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!

Pflugerville 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.  

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 capacity 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!
