 Oxford 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. Oxford back pain patients avoid 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 using 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 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 some time! Within our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, we guide our back pain patients to get back to normal spinal motions gradually as their pain lowers and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Oxford chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Satterwhite Chiropractic and you will get there together! Satterwhite Chiropractic 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, like bending, lifting and twisting.

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

Oxford 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 reduction of chronic pain due to compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is said to alleviate 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 Oxford sciatic leg pain. Satterwhite Chiropractic does!
