 Lynchburg chiropractic care encourages back pain patients to resist the urge to avoid normal spine motion once they are through their pain.
 

DON’T FEAR!  BE CONFIDENT WITH YOUR SPINE.

Chiropractors witness fear avoidance every day. Lynchburg back pain patients stay away from lifting or worry about over-doing it with their spines for things like lifting due to fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers report that chronic low back pain patients tend to protect their spines by lifting using a reduced lumbar spine range of motion. Doing this for a long stretch of time may end up hurting more than helping. The lumbar spine tissues may encounter extra loading because of altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a pretty normal reaction in back pain patients. Don’t feel funny if you do this for some time! Within our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, we guide our back pain patients to return to normal spinal motions gradually as their pain decreases and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Lynchburg chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Palmer Chiropractic Center and you will get there together! Palmer Chiropractic Center is your partner in controlling back pain, so it doesn’t control you.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Clint Dickason on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes his care of a nurse with back pain and sciatic leg pain using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to help her get back to doing the activities of daily life and her job, like bending, lifting and twisting.

Lynchburg chiropractic nutrition integration is important, particularly when curcumin is shown to be an anti-inflammatory benefit. 

Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: CURCUMIN FOR CHRONIC PAIN RELIEF AND IMPROVED COGNITION

Cognitive impairment is observed in patients with chronic neuropathic pain. A recent study on the effects of curcumin reports improvement in cognitive impairment and lessening of chronic pain due to compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is said to ease chronic constriction injury related behaviors and memory deficits by lowering inflammatory cytokines. (2) Sciatica is irritation of the sciatic nerve resulting in leg pain. If you have sciatica, do you notice issues with cognition? Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties are something to be thought about in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Lynchburg sciatic leg pain. Palmer Chiropractic Center does!
