CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION
A new 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 outcomes. Back And Neck Care Center knows
our Severna Park chiropractic patients would like 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 (electrical
current, laser), 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 enhance
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 stated
that good/moderate quality evidence supported 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 recommendations are all accessible
within the personalized Severna Park chiropractic
treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

specialist, Dr. Nike Taylor on The
Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as she describes

Spinal Pain Management.
Severna Park CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Severna Park 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 ability to stop prostaglandins and
pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-lowering effect
holds promise and is safe by all the most recent
studies. (4) Ginger swallowed orally has been safely done in many
studies. One specific study explained
that osteoarthritis patients’ pain dropped significantly and
disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger,
holds such zesty promise!
