KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Carrolltown chiropractor works with Carrolltown back pain
patients every day. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain doesn’t just affect
the back and spine. It affects the back pain sufferer’s
emotions and physicality, too.
Kinesiophobia is a more extreme fear of pain or re-injury upon movement.
Understandably such fear alters the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers say significantly.
(1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation understands. It is reasonable
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation urges slow but sure
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be welcomed
by Carrolltown back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs delivered 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
Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation test muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is accepted that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those who
don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers experience balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
can find out much about Carrolltown back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
