KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Preston chiropractor works with Preston back pain
patients every day. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Chiropractic Associates is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain does not just affect
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 affects 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 Associates understands. It is wise
to not desire to prompt such back pain if one can avoid
it. Chiropractic Associates encourages slow but sure
return to usual life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Preston CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Chiropractic Associates shares that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be welcomed
by Preston back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of 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 reduce
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
Preston chiropractor at Chiropractic Associates 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 known that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to a variety of 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) Chiropractic Associates
can find out much about Preston back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
