CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION

A recent study offers the latest recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient outcomes. The Novelli Wellness Center is sure that our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) 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 enhance prior such studies. One group of researchers proposed reassurance, advice, education, spinal manipulation along with exercise, myofascial therapy or usual medical care when helpful for chronic low back pain. (2) Another research group reviewed complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and reported 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 accessible within the individualized Buffalo, NY chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Buffalo, NY CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Buffalo, NY 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 stop prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-lowering 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 dropped significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
