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 reiterate 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!

specialist, Dr. Nike Taylor on The
Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as she shares

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!
