Plainville back pain sufferer will agree: back pain alters
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over takes lots of thought…or causes total avoidance.
Layden Chiropractic knows back pain alters movements.
Researchers continue to study just how and how much it changes
movement. With chiropractic care, your Plainville chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the ease of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Patients with low back pain move atypically.
They often change the way they move to prevent
pain. They’ll walk differently. They turn
around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual.
A recent study reviewed over 800 papers on this
topic of altered kinematics. The authors concluded
that the limitation of lumbar spinal mobility in all planes brought
on by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study found
that the kind of spinal disorder a patient impacted
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain demonstrated greater
differences in a variety of biomechanical motions (like hip,
spine, and knee torque) compared to patients with
non-specific low back pain. (2) Determining just how much
spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is the job your Plainville
chiropractor relishes most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare professional like your
Plainville chiropractor examine new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions demanded by activities of
daily living are valuable. Patients with low back pain exhibit
greatly altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients
with low back pain demonstrated motion changes in the lumbar
spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers showed
altered motor adaptability while doing diverse
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Layden Chiropractic
is comprehensive to record the
extent to which low back pain is impacting
your daily activities in order to return you to your activities of daily
living with the least
