 Baton Rouge 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 witness fear avoidance every day. Baton Rouge 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 are inclined to protect their spines by lifting utilizing a reduced 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 natural response 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 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 Baton Rouge chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation and you will get there together! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 normal motions of daily life and her job, including bending, lifting and twisting.

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

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

Cognitive impairment is observed in patients with chronic neuropathic pain. A recent study on the effects of curcumin reports improvement in cognitive impairment and lessening of chronic pain as a result of compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is said 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 considered in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Baton Rouge sciatic leg pain. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation does!
