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


Chiropractors see it every day. Fort Wayne back pain sufferers stay away from 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 are inclined 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 more loading because of altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a pretty normal response in back pain patients. Don’t feel funny if you do this for some time! Within our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, we encourage our back pain patients to return to normal spinal motions slowly as their pain lowers and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Fort Wayne chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc and you will get there together! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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.

Fort Wayne chiropractic nutrition integration is important, especially 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 describes improvement in cognitive impairment and lessening of chronic pain as a result of compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is reported 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 Fort Wayne sciatic leg pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc does!
