KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your St. Francisville chiropractor works with St. Francisville back pain
patients every day. It is important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain does not just affect
the back and spine. It influences the back pain sufferer’s
emotions and physicality, too.
Kinesiophobia is a more extreme fear of pain or re-injury upon movement.
No doubt such fear affects the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers say significantly.
(1) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville understands. It is reasonable
to not want to prompt such back pain if one can avoid
it. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville urges slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE St. Francisville CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by St. Francisville back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered greater
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
St. Francisville chiropractor at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville test muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it’s known that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those who
don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville
can discover much about St. Francisville back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
