KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Baton Rouge chiropractor works with Baton Rouge 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 Spine & Sports 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 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center understands. It’s wise
to not want to prompt such back pain if one can avoid
it. Spine & Sports Rehab Center urges slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Spine & Sports Rehab Center reports that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by Baton Rouge 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 superior to reduce
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab 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 is established that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to a variety of 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center
can find out much about Baton Rouge back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
