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

Oxford chronic pain patients can rely on Satterwhite 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 new study presents the latest recommendations on how to manage and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Satterwhite Chiropractic knows our Oxford chiropractic patients would like 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 needed. (1) These recommendations reiterate and improve prior such studies. One group of researchers offered reassurance, advice, education, spinal manipulation along with exercise, myofascial therapy or normal medical care when helpful 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-honed chiropractic skill while the other recommendations are all accessible within the individualized Oxford 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.

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

Oxford CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

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