Back Pain Changes Baton Rouge Spinal Movement

Any Baton Rouge back pain sufferer will agree: back pain affects movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over takes lots of thought…or prompts total avoidance. Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows back pain changes motions. Researchers keep studying just how and how much it alters motion. With chiropractic care, your Baton Rouge chiropractor aims to help you regain the ease of movement you had before you had back pain.


Back pain patients move differently. They often alter the way they move to evade pain. You will see them walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual. A new study analyzed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors asserted that restricted lumbar spinal mobility in all planes brought on by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study found that the kind of spinal disorder a patient affected the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand activity. Patients with spinal deformity-related back pain demonstrated greater differences in a variety of biomechanical motions (like hip, spine, and knee torque) weighed against patients with non-specific low back pain. (2) Determining just how much spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is your Baton Rouge chiropractor’s much-loved job.


When healthcare professional like your Baton Rouge chiropractor analyze new low back pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new patients’ ability to carry out motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain reveal greatly altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients with low back pain showed motion changes in the lumbar spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers exhibited altered motor adaptability while performing diverse repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking, sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Spine & Sports Rehab Center is thorough to document just how much low back pain is impeding your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least possible trouble.
