KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Plainville chiropractor works with Plainville back pain
patients every day. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Layden Chiropractic is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain doesn’t just alter
the back and spine. It alters the back pain sufferer’s
emotions and physicality, too.
Kinesiophobia is a more extreme fear of pain or re-injury upon movement.
Understandably such fear influences the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers say significantly.
(1) Layden Chiropractic understands. It’s reasonable
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Layden Chiropractic encourages slow but sure
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Plainville CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Layden Chiropractic reports that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by Plainville back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs provided better
short-term symptom improvement, physical function and walking capacity than
medical care or group exercise. (2)
BALANCE, MUSCLE AND BACK PAIN
Individualized treatment plans are best to decrease
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic test muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it’s established that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who
don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers experience balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Layden Chiropractic
can discover much about Plainville back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
