KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your West Palm Beach chiropractor works with West Palm Beach back pain
patients every day. It’s vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Chiropractic Care is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain doesn’t 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.
No doubt such fear influences the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers write that it is altered significantly.
(1) Chiropractic Care gets it. It’s reasonable
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Chiropractic Care urges slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Chiropractic Care reports that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be welcomed
by West Palm Beach back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered 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 best to reduce
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
West Palm Beach chiropractor at Chiropractic Care 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 known that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers have balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Chiropractic Care
can find out much about West Palm Beach back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
