Back Pain Changes New Roads Spinal Movement

Any 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.


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 much-loved job.


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 possible difficulty.
