Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center Calms Patients Fear Of Returned Back Pain With Chiropractic Care

KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something your Pensacola chiropractor works with Pensacola back pain patients all the time. It is important to move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary, and Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is all about getting our chiropractic patients moving and keeping them moving.


Chronic back pain does not 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 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center understands. It is reasonable to not want to prompt such back pain if one can avoid it. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center urges slow but sure return to usual life motions and to do it one day at a time.


Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center reports that research studies revealed improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. This would certainly be welcomed by Pensacola back pain patients suffering with lumbar spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US adults.  Manual therapy and individualized exercise programs offered greater short-term symptom improvement, physical function and walking capacity than medical care or group exercise.

Individualized treatment plans are best to decrease pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your Pensacola chiropractor at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center assess muscle activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture in older patients and those with chronic low back pain because it is accepted 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 lower.
