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, encourage collaborative care
among various healthcare providers, and ultimately
improve patient outcomes. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is sure that
our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients would appreciate that! Plans
to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck
pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) 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 necessary. (1) These recommendations echo and enhance
prior such studies. One set of researchers proposed
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 studied
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-honed chiropractic
skill while the other suggestions are all available
within the individualized Fort Wayne chiropractic
treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Fort Wayne 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 according to all the most recent
studies. (4) Ginger taken orally has been safely done in several
studies. One particular study explained
that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger,
holds such zesty promise!
