August 2020 Healthy News from Cross Chiropractic Center: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Sandy Springs chronic pain patients can rely on Cross Chiropractic 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 recent study reports the most up-to-date 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. Cross Chiropractic Center knows our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients would like that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and fibromyalgia – incorporated 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 necessary. (1) These recommendations reiterate and enhance prior such studies. One group of researchers proposed 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 studied complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and reported that good/moderate quality evidence backed 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 recommendations are all available within the individualized Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Sandy Springs 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.  

Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Sandy Springs 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 capacity to stop prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-reducing effect holds promise and is safe by all the most recent studies. (4) Ginger swallowed orally has been safely done in many studies. One specific study explained that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
