Manchester chronic pain patients can rely on Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries for pain relief with our chiropractic treatment plan that follows today’s research guidelines and includes spinal manipulation.

CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION

A new study reports the latest recommendations on managing and relieving 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. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is sure that our Manchester chiropractic patients would like that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and fibromyalgia – incorporated 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 reiterate and improve prior such studies. One group of researchers proposed 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 backed 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 accessible within the personalized Manchester chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Manchester CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Manchester PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!

Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts! Pain-lowering 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 taken orally has been safely done in several studies. One particular study reported that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly and disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
