August 2020 Healthy News from Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic: Pain Reducers: Spinal Manipulation and Ginger

Eugene chronic pain patients can rely on Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 recent study presents the most up-to-date recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Make care more consistent, encourage collaborative care among a variety of healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient results. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is sure that our Eugene chiropractic patients would like that! Plans to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (knee and hip) 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 needed. (1) These recommendations reiterate and enhance prior such studies. One set of researchers suggested 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 reviewed 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 individualized Eugene chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Listen to this PODCAST with chiropractic back pain specialist, Dr. Nike Taylor on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as she shares a chronic back pain patient’s journey to pain relief with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Eugene chronic pain and osteoarthritis pain patients will want to investigate ginger for its many varied benefits not least of which is pain reduction.  

Eugene CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Eugene 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 stop prostaglandins and pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-lowering 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 shared that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly and disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
