KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your New Roads chiropractor works with New Roads back pain
patients every day. It’s vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and New Roads Chiropractic Center is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain does not 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 alters the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers report significantly.
(1) New Roads Chiropractic Center understands. It’s wise
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. New Roads Chiropractic Center encourages slow but sure
return to usual life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE New Roads CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
New Roads Chiropractic Center reports that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be well received
by New Roads back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of 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 superior to decrease
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is known that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those without chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers undergo balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center
can find out much about New Roads back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
