 Burlington and Hamilton 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. Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers avoid 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 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 pretty normal response in back pain patients. Do not feel weird if you do this for a while! 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 Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Spinal Care Clinic and you will get there together! Spinal Care Clinic 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.

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

Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: CURCUMIN FOR CHRONIC PAIN RELIEF AND IMPROVED COGNITION

Cognitive impairment is seen in patients with chronic neuropathic pain. A recent study on the effects of curcumin describes improvement in cognitive impairment and lessening of chronic pain as a result of compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is reported to ease chronic constriction injury related behaviors and memory deficits by lowering inflammatory cytokines. (2) The sciatic nerve is irritated in sciatica causing leg pain. If you have sciatica, do you notice issues with cognition? Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties are something to be considered in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Burlington and Hamilton sciatic leg pain. Spinal Care Clinic does!
