 Carrolltown chiropractic care encourages back pain patients to not give into the urge to avoid normal spine motion once they are through their pain.
 

DON’T FEAR!  BE CONFIDENT WITH YOUR SPINE.

Chiropractors witness it every day. Carrolltown back pain sufferers avoid lifting or worry about over-doing it with their spines for things like lifting out of fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers write that chronic low back pain patients are inclined to protect their spines by lifting utilizing 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 experience more loading due to altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a natural reaction in back pain patients. Do not feel weird if you do this for some time! Within our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, we encourage our back pain patients to return to normal spinal motions slowly as their pain lowers and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Carrolltown chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation and you will get there together! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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, including bending, lifting and twisting.

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

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

Cognitive impairment is seen in patients with chronic neuropathic pain. A new study on the effects of curcumin reports improvement in cognitive impairment and lessening of chronic pain as a result of compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is reported to alleviate 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 Carrolltown sciatic leg pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation does!
