 Plainville 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 it every day. Plainville back pain sufferers avoid lifting or worry about using their spines for things like lifting out of fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers write that chronic low back pain patients are inclined to protect their spines by lifting using 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 more 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 some time! Within our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, we guide our back pain patients to get back to normal spinal motions slowly as their pain reduces and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Plainville chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Layden Chiropractic and you will get there together! Layden 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 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 normal motions of daily life and her job, including bending, lifting and twisting.

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

Plainville 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 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 reducing inflammatory cytokines. (2) The sciatic nerve is irritated in sciatica causing 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 Plainville sciatic leg pain. Layden Chiropractic does!
