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.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY 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.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
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
