August 2020 Healthy News from Executive Chiropractic of Iowa: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

West Des Moines chronic pain patients can rely on Executive Chiropractic of Iowa 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 most up-to-date recommendations on how to manage and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among a variety of healthcare providers, and finally improve patient results. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows our West Des Moines chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and fibromyalgia – included 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 echo and improve prior such studies. One group 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 studied complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and reported 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-practiced chiropractic skill while the other suggestions are all available within the personalized West Des Moines chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

West Des Moines CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

West Des Moines 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-reducing effect holds promise and is safe by all the latest studies. (4) Ginger swallowed orally has been safely done in several studies. One specific study shared that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
