Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Calms Patients Fear Of Returned Back Pain With Chiropractic Care

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 prompt 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 a time.

MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT HEALING PLAN

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.

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.
