August 2020 Healthy News from Soft Health and Healing Clinic: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Brooks chronic pain patients can rely on Soft Health and Healing Clinic for pain relief with our chiropractic treatment plan that adheres to today’s research guidelines and includes spinal manipulation.

CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION

A new study reports the latest recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Get care to be more consistent, promote collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and finally improve patient results. Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows our Brooks chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Plans to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) and fibromyalgia – involved 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 necessary. (1) These recommendations echo and enhance prior such studies. One set of researchers suggested 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 studied 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 recommendations are all accessible within the personalized Brooks 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 a chronic back pain patient’s journey to pain relief with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Brooks chronic pain and osteoarthritis pain patients will want to check out ginger for its many varied benefits not least of which is pain reduction.  

Brooks CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Brooks PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!

Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts! Pain-lowering effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant potential and its capacity to stop 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 specific study shared that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly and disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
