 Brooks 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 see it every day. Brooks back pain patients avoid lifting or worry about using 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 encounter more loading due to altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a natural reaction 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 return to normal spinal motions slowly as their pain decreases and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Brooks chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Soft Health and Healing Clinic and you will get there together! Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 the activities of daily life and her job, including bending, lifting and twisting.

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

Brooks 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 reports 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) 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 thought about in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Brooks sciatic leg pain. Soft Health and Healing Clinic does!
