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


Chiropractors witness fear avoidance every day. Manahawkin back pain sufferers avoid lifting or worry about over-doing it with their spines for things like lifting out of fear of (re)injury and pain.  Researchers report that chronic low back pain patients tend 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 encounter more loading because of altered spine motion. (1) Fear-avoidance is a pretty normal reaction 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 encourage our back pain patients to return to normal spinal motions gradually as their pain decreases and their exercise routine strengthens their spines via Manahawkin chiropractic  treatment, exercise, and nutrition. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center and you will get there together! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center 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 the activities of daily life and her job, including bending, lifting and twisting.

Manahawkin 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 recent study on the effects of curcumin reports improvement in cognitive impairment and lessening of chronic pain due to compressed sciatic nerves in rats. Curcumin is said 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 thought about in the nutritional approach to chronic pain and Manahawkin sciatic leg pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center does!
