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.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY 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
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
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
