August 2020 Healthy News from Vancouver Spine Care Centre: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Vancouver chronic pain patients can rely on Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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 new study offers the latest recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows our Vancouver chiropractic patients would like that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and fibromyalgia – involved 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 echo and enhance prior such studies. One group of researchers offered 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 studied complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and stated that good/moderate quality evidence supported 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 suggestions are all accessible within the personalized Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

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

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Vancouver 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 stop prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-lowering effect holds promise and is safe by 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 and disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
