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 finally
improve patient results. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is sure that
our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients would like that! Plans
to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck
pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and
fibromyalgia – involved 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 suggested
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 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 recommendations are all available
within the individualized Fernandina Beach chiropractic
treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

specialist, Dr. Nike Taylor on The

Spinal Pain Management.
Fernandina Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Fernandina Beach 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 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 many
studies. One particular study explained
that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger,
holds such zesty promise!
