CHRONIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN CARE: SPINAL MANIPULATION
A recent study reports the latest recommendations on managing and relieving chronic musculoskeletal pain. The goal? Make care more consistent, promote collaborative care
among various healthcare providers, and finally
improve patient outcomes. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows
our Montreal chiropractic patients would like that! Plans
to manage musculoskeletal conditions - low back pain, neck
pain, tension headache, osteoarthritis (hip and knee) and
fibromyalgia – included 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 echo and improve
prior such studies. One group 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 studied
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-honed chiropractic
skill while the other suggestions are all available
within the individualized Montreal 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.
Montreal CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Montreal PAIN REDUCER: GINGER!
Ginger adds zest to food and to pain-relieving efforts!
Pain-reducing effects of ginger come from its anti-oxidant potential
and its capacity to stop prostaglandins and
pain-related nociceptor activity. Ginger’s pain-reducing effect
holds promise and is safe according to all the latest
studies. (4) Ginger swallowed orally has been safely done in many
studies. One specific study shared
that osteoarthritis patients’ pain reduced significantly and
disability did as well. (5) Such a simple herb, ginger,
holds such zesty promise!
