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

Richmond chronic pain patients can rely on Johnson Chiropractic 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 presents the most up-to-date recommendations on how to manage and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Make care more consistent, encourage collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and finally improve patient outcomes. Johnson Chiropractic knows our Richmond chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Plans to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and fibromyalgia – incorporated 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 reiterate and enhance prior such studies. One group 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 stated that good/moderate quality evidence supported 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 suggestions are all available within the individualized Richmond 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 shares a chronic back pain patient’s journey to pain relief with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Richmond 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.  

Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Richmond 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 inhibit prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-reducing effect holds promise and is safe according to all the latest studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in several studies. One specific study shared that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
