 Williamson 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. Williamson back pain patients stay away from lifting or worry about using their spines for things like lifting out of fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers state that chronic low back pain patients are inclined to protect their spines by lifting utilizing 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. Don’t feel funny if you do this for a while! Within our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, we encourage our back pain patients to get back to normal spinal motions gradually as their pain lowers and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Williamson chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Apple Country Chiropractic and you will get there together! Apple Country Chiropractic 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 the activities of daily life and her job, including bending, lifting and twisting.

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


Cognitive impairment is observed 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 lowering inflammatory cytokines. (2) Sciatica is irritation of the sciatic nerve causing 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 Williamson sciatic leg pain. Apple Country Chiropractic does!
