August 2020 Healthy News from Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Paramus chronic pain patients can rely on Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 recent study offers the latest recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Get care to be more consistent, promote collaborative care among a variety of healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient results. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is sure that our Paramus 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 (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 needed. (1) These recommendations echo and improve prior such studies. One group 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 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 personalized Paramus chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

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

Paramus CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

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