New Roads 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 prompts total avoidance.
New Roads Chiropractic Center knows back pain changes movements.
Researchers continue to study just how and how much it changes
motion. With chiropractic care, your New Roads chiropractor aims to help you get back the ease of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Back pain patients move differently.
They often alter the way they move to avoid
pain. They will walk differently. They turn
around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different.
A recent study reviewed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors asserted
that the limitation of lumbar spinal mobility in all planes caused 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) Figuring out just how much
spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is your New Roads chiropractor’s
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
New Roads chiropractor analyze new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that check our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain reveal
considerably 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 exhibited
altered motor adaptability while doing a variety of
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at New Roads Chiropractic Center
is systematic to document the
extent to which low back pain is affecting
your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least
