Fort Wayne 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 visit Aaron Chiropractic Clinic with all different types issues. Some walk better than others. Some have better muscles than others. Some are more susceptible to depression than others. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor understands this and joins each back pain patient where s/he is and examines each patient to find the difference(s) that make all the difference when putting together an alleviating chiropractic treatment plan. Tests 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 musculoskeletal and cardiovascular health in degenerative lumbar spine patients. Both may be influenced 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 possible.) (2) Chiropractors get this and promote gentle exercise for these back muscles as part of the treatment plan to prevent recurrent back pain that a few lumbar disc degeneration sufferers endure. A recent study explained that those who tend to experience recurrent back pain were found to move differently, more carefully, likely to evade pain. Recurrent back pain patients also suffered with higher levels of anxiety, depression, and disability along with a reduced quality of life. (3) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor welcomes all back pain sufferers with all their peculiarities. Your chiropractor partners with each one throughout the current back pain event and beyond to control the back pain (physical, mental, and emotional aspects), 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 eases pain in a chronic back pain patient dealing with a recurrent episode of back pain with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to find relief and a feeling of control over back pain to lessen recurrent back pain episodes as much as possible.

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

Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

SMELLING SCENTS TO REDUCE PAIN!

An interesting study of chronic low back pain patients found that odor-training helped decrease 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 hinted that it may help reduce pain chronification and quite probably control general pain via desensitization. (4) What an enjoyable adjunct this could be to the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management! You may want to try sniffing some good scents yourself!
