KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a 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.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
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
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Pensacola CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
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. (2)
BALANCE, MUSCLE AND BACK PAIN
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. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
can find out much about Pensacola back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
