 Colorado Springs 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. Colorado Springs 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 report that chronic low back pain patients tend to protect their spines by lifting using a diminished 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 due to altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a natural reaction in back pain patients. Do not feel weird if you do this for a while! 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 Colorado Springs chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR and you will get there together! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 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 the activities of daily life and her job, like bending, lifting and twisting.

Colorado Springs 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 new study on the effects of curcumin reports improvement in cognitive impairment and lessening 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 resulting in 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 Colorado Springs sciatic leg pain. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR does!
