CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION
A recent study reports the most
up-to-date recommendations on how to manage
and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Make care more consistent, encourage collaborative care
among a variety of healthcare providers, and finally
improve patient results. Wilson Family Chiropractic is sure that
our Millville chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Plans
to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck
pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) 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 echo and improve
prior such studies. One set of researchers suggested
reassurance, advice, education, spinal manipulation along with exercise,
myofascial therapy or normal medical care when beneficial
for chronic low back pain. (2) Another research group studied
complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and reported
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-practiced chiropractic
skill while the other suggestions are all available
within the personalized Millville chiropractic
treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Millville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Millville PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!
Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts!
Pain-reducing effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant potential
and its ability to stop prostaglandins and
pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-lowering effect
holds promise and is safe by all the most recent
studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in several
studies. One specific study explained
that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly and
disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger,
holds such zesty promise!
