 Malverne 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. Malverne back pain sufferers stay away from lifting or worry about using their spines for things like lifting due to fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers write 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 experience more loading due to 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 encourage our back pain patients to get back to normal spinal motions slowly as their pain reduces and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Malverne chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Malverne Health & Wellness and you will get there together! Malverne Health & Wellness 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.

Malverne 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 as a result of compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is reported to alleviate chronic constriction injury related behaviors and memory deficits by reducing inflammatory cytokines. (2) The sciatic nerve is irritated in sciatica causing leg pain. If you have sciatica, do you note issues with cognition? Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties are something to be thought about in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Malverne sciatic leg pain. Malverne Health & Wellness does!
