KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Lynchburg chiropractor works with Lynchburg back pain
patients all the time. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Palmer Chiropractic Center 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 influences 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 alters the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers report significantly.
(1) Palmer Chiropractic Center understands. It’s reasonable
to not want to prompt such back pain if one can avoid
it. Palmer Chiropractic Center urges slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Palmer Chiropractic Center shares that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be welcomed
by Lynchburg back pain patients suffering with 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 superior to reduce
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center test 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 respond with different
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center
can discover much about Lynchburg back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
