Groton chronic pain patients can rely on Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 offers the most up-to-date recommendations on how to manage and relieve chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care among various healthcare providers, and ultimately improve patient results. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is sure that our Groton chiropractic patients would like that! Guidelines for musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) 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 reiterate and improve prior such studies. One set of researchers proposed 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 reviewed complementary medicine for musculoskeletal conditions and stated 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 recommendations are all available within the individualized Groton chiropractic treatment plan. Let’s work on your chronic musculoskeletal pain!

Groton CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Groton 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 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 swallowed orally has been safely done in several studies. One specific study shared that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly as did disability. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger, holds such zesty promise!
