 Vancouver 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. Vancouver back pain patients stay away from lifting or worry about using their spines for things like lifting out of fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers report that chronic low back pain patients tend to protect their spines by lifting utilizing 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 experience extra loading because of altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a pretty normal reaction 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 get back to normal spinal motions gradually as their pain decreases and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Vancouver chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Vancouver Disc Centers and you will get there together! Vancouver Disc Centers 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.

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

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: CURCUMIN FOR CHRONIC PAIN RELIEF AND IMPROVED COGNITION

Cognitive impairment is observed 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 said to ease chronic constriction injury related behaviors and memory deficits by reducing 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 considered in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Vancouver sciatic leg pain. Vancouver Disc Centers does!
