Murfreesboro chiropractic care helps control chronic back pain that causes pain beyond the back and into life that keeps sufferers from enjoying their lives. 

Back pain patients come to Most Chiropractic Clinic with all different types issues. Some walk better than others. Some have better muscles than others. Some are more prone to depression than others. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor understands this and meets each back pain patient where s/he is and examines each patient to discover the difference(s) that make all the difference when designing a relieving chiropractic treatment plan. Assessments like the 6-minute walk test that measures the distance walked in 6 minutes and the TUG (‘time up to go’ from a seated position) test can be quite educational about cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health in degenerative lumbar spine patients. Both may be affected by back pain. (1) Back muscles that turn weak and fatty (like the multifidus muscle tends to do) signify issues with inflammatory and regeneration processes. (Back surgeons do not like this as a inferior surgical outcome is likely.) (2) Chiropractors understand this and encourage gentle exercise for these back muscles as a component of the treatment plan to avert recurrent back pain that some lumbar disc degeneration sufferers endure. A new study explained that those who tend to get recurrent back pain were shown to move in a different way, more causiously, likely to evade pain. Recurrent back pain patients also experienced higher levels of anxiety, depression, and disability as well as a lower quality of life. (3) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor welcomes all back pain sufferers with all their issues. Your chiropractor partners with each one during the current back pain event and beyond to control the back pain (physical, mental, and emotional features), so it does not control them.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Nike Taylor on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson on how she helps a chronic back pain patient in the middle of a recurrent episode of back pain via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to find relief and a sense of control over back pain to minimize recurrent back pain episodes as much as possible.

Chronic Murfreesboro back pain may be helped by olfactory training which utilizes smelling scents to desensitize the sufferer to the pain.

Murfreesboro CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

SNIFFING SCENTS TO LESSEN PAIN!

An interesting study of chronic low back pain patients found that odor-training helped reduce their pain thresholds. Regular exposure (every two hours in the study) to scents like rose, vanilla, peach and chocolate – olfactory training! - helped lessen pain. The researchers suggested that it may help lessen pain chronification and quite possibly control general pain via desensitization. (4) What a pleasant addition this could be to the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management! You may want to try sniffing some pleasurable scents yourself!
