Back Pain Changes Williamson Spinal Movement

Any Williamson back pain sufferer will agree: back pain alters movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over takes lots of thought…or triggers total avoidance. Apple Country Chiropractic knows back pain changes motions. Researchers keep studying just how and how much it alters motion. With chiropractic care, your Williamson chiropractor aims to help you regain the simplicity of movement you had before you had back pain.


Back pain patients move differently. They often change the way they move to prevent pain. They’ll walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different. A new study reviewed over 800 papers on this topic of altered kinematics. The authors asserted that the limitation of 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 impacted the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with spinal deformity-related back pain showed 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 the job your Williamson chiropractor enjoys most.


When healthcare providers like your Williamson 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 demonstrated motion changes in the lumbar spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers showed altered motor adaptability while doing diverse repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking, sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Apple Country Chiropractic is comprehensive to document just how much low back pain is affecting your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least possible trouble.
