KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Manahawkin chiropractor works with Manahawkin back pain
patients every day. It’s vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Manahawkin 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 affects 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 write that it is altered significantly.
(1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center understands. It’s reasonable
to not desire to prompt such back pain if one can avoid
it. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center urges slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Manahawkin CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be welcomed
by Manahawkin back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs provided 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 return motion and function. Doctors like your
Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it’s established that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers undergo balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
can discover much about Manahawkin back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
