 Tonawanda chiropractic care encourages back pain patients to not give into the urge to avoid normal spine motion once they are through their pain.


Chiropractors see it every day. Tonawanda back pain patients avoid 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 are inclined 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 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 decreases and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Tonawanda chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation and you will get there together! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation 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 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.

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


Cognitive impairment is observed in patients with chronic neuropathic pain. A new 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 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 Tonawanda sciatic leg pain.
