CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION
A new study presents the most
up-to-date recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Get care to
be more consistent, encourage collaborative care
among a variety of healthcare providers, and finally
improve patient results. Moses Chiropractic is sure that
our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients would like that! Guidelines for 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 improve
prior such studies. One set of researchers proposed
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 reviewed
complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and stated
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-honed chiropractic
skill while the other recommendations are all available
within the individualized West Palm Beach chiropractic
treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

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