KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor works with Burlington and Hamilton back pain
patients every day. It’s vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Spinal Care Clinic is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain doesn’t just affect
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 affects the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers report significantly.
(1) Spinal Care Clinic gets it. It’s wise
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Spinal Care Clinic urges slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Spinal Care Clinic reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be well received
by Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs delivered better
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
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic test muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is established that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who
don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers experience balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Spinal Care Clinic
can find out much about Burlington and Hamilton back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
