 Richmond 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 it every day. Richmond back pain sufferers 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 state 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 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 a while! Within our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, we encourage our back pain patients to get back to normal spinal motions gradually as their pain decreases and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Richmond chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Johnson Chiropractic and you will get there together! Johnson Chiropractic 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, like bending, lifting and twisting.

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

Richmond 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 reports improvement in cognitive impairment and reduction of chronic pain due to 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 considered in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Richmond sciatic leg pain. Johnson Chiropractic does!
