 Pensacola chiropractic care encourages back pain patients to resist the urge to avoid normal spine motion once they are through their pain.


Chiropractors see fear avoidance every day. Pensacola back pain patients stay away from lifting or worry about using their spines for things like lifting due to fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers write that chronic low back pain patients are inclined 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 experience extra loading due to altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a natural reaction 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 gradually as their pain decreases and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Pensacola chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center and you will get there together! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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.

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


Cognitive impairment is seen 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 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 considered in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Pensacola sciatic leg pain. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center does!
