 Minster 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 see fear avoidance every day. Minster back pain sufferers avoid lifting or worry about using their spines for things like lifting out of fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers state that chronic low back pain patients are inclined to protect their spines by lifting utilizing a diminished 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 natural 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 Minster chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Minster Chiropractic Center and you will get there together! Minster 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 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 the activities of daily life and her job, like bending, lifting and twisting.

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

Minster 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 lessening 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) Sciatica is irritation of the sciatic nerve causing 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 Minster sciatic leg pain. Minster Chiropractic Center does!
