 New Roads 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. New Roads back pain sufferers stay away from 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 tend to protect their spines by lifting using a diminished lumbar spine range of motion. Doing this for a long period of time may end up hurting more than helping. The lumbar spine tissues may encounter extra loading due to altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a pretty normal response in back pain patients. Don’t feel weird if you do this for some time! Within our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, we guide our back pain patients to get back to normal spinal motions slowly as their pain reduces and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via New Roads chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. New Roads Chiropractic Center and you will get there together! New Roads 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 explains 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 normal motions of daily life and her job, including bending, lifting and twisting.

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

New Roads 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 describes improvement in cognitive impairment and reduction of chronic pain as a result of compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is said to alleviate chronic constriction injury related behaviors and memory deficits by reducing inflammatory cytokines. (2) The sciatic nerve is irritated in sciatica causing leg pain. If you have sciatica, do you note issues with cognition? Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties are something to be considered in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and New Roads sciatic leg pain. New Roads Chiropractic Center does!
