CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION
A recent study presents the latest recommendations on how to manage
and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The aim? Get care to
be more consistent, encourage collaborative care
among a variety of healthcare providers, and finally
improve patient results. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows
our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients would like that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck
pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and
fibromyalgia – included 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 improve
prior such studies. One set of researchers offered
reassurance, advice, education, spinal manipulation along with exercise,
myofascial therapy or normal 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-honed chiropractic
skill while the other recommendations are all accessible
within the personalized 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-lowering effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant potential
and its capacity to inhibit prostaglandins and
pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-reducing effect
holds promise and is safe by all the most recent
studies. (4) Ginger taken 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!
