 Ashburn 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 it every day. Ashburn back pain patients stay away from lifting or worry about over-doing it with their spines for things like lifting due to fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers state that chronic low back pain patients tend to protect their spines by lifting utilizing 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 experience more loading because of altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a pretty normal response in back pain patients. Do not feel funny if you do this for some time! Within our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, we guide our back pain patients to return to normal spinal motions slowly as their pain lowers and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Ashburn chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn and you will get there together! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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, like bending, lifting and twisting.

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

Ashburn 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 describes improvement in cognitive impairment and lessening of chronic pain as a result of compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is reported to alleviate 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 notice issues with cognition? Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties are something to be thought about in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Ashburn sciatic leg pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn does!
