KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Williamson chiropractor works with Williamson back pain
patients all the time. It is important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is important,
and Apple Country Chiropractic 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 alters 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 report significantly.
(1) Apple Country Chiropractic gets it. It is reasonable
to not desire to prompt such back pain if one can avoid
it. Apple Country Chiropractic encourages slow but sure
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Williamson CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Apple Country Chiropractic reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by Williamson back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered better
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 restore motion and function. Doctors like your
Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic test muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
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 without chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers have balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic
can find out much about Williamson back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
