 Sandy Springs 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. Sandy Springs 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 using a reduced 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 experience more loading because of altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a pretty normal response in back pain patients. Do not feel funny 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 gradually as their pain lowers and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Sandy Springs chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Cross Chiropractic Center and you will get there together! Cross Chiropractic Center is your partner in controlling back pain, so it does not 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.

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

Sandy Springs 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 due to 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 resulting in 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 Sandy Springs sciatic leg pain. Cross Chiropractic Center does!
