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


Chiropractors witness fear avoidance every day. Easley back pain patients stay away from lifting or worry about over-doing it with 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 utilizing a diminished 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 natural response in back pain patients. Don’t feel funny if you do this for a while! 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 reduces and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Easley chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Young Chiropractic and you will get there together! Young 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 the activities of daily life and her job, like bending, lifting and twisting.

Easley 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 recent study on the effects of curcumin describes improvement in cognitive impairment and reduction 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) 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 Easley sciatic leg pain. Young Chiropractic does!
