August 2020 Healthy News from Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Ashburn chronic pain patients can rely on Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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 reports the latest recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Get care to be more consistent, encourage collaborative care among a variety of healthcare providers, and finally improve patient outcomes. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows our Ashburn 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 (electrical current, laser), 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 set of researchers proposed 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 reported that good/moderate quality evidence backed the use of 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 suggestions are all available within the individualized Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Ashburn PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!

Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts! Pain-lowering effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant potential and its capacity to inhibit prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-lowering effect holds promise and is safe by all the most recent studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in several studies. One specific study explained that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
