Ask any Manahawkin back pain sufferer, and s/he will agree: back pain changes
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over takes lots of thought…or causes total avoidance.
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows back pain alters movements.
Researchers keep studying just how and how much it changes
movement. With chiropractic care, your Manahawkin chiropractor aims to help you get back the ease of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Patients with low back pain move atypically.
They often change the way they move to prevent
pain. They’ll walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual.
A new study reviewed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors wound up stating
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 affected
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand activity. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain showed 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 affected by back pain is your Manahawkin chiropractor’s
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
Manahawkin chiropractor analyze new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new
patients’ ability to perform motions demanded by activities of
daily living are valuable. Patients with low back pain show
greatly altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients
with low back pain showed motion changes in the lumbar
spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers exhibited
altered motor adaptability while performing diverse
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
is comprehensive to record the
extent to which low back pain is impeding
your daily activities in order to return you to your activities of daily
living with the least
