KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Vancouver chiropractor works with Vancouver back pain
patients all the time. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Vancouver Disc Centers 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 influences 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 affects the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers write that it is altered significantly.
(1) Vancouver Disc Centers gets it. It’s wise
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. Vancouver Disc Centers encourages slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Vancouver Disc Centers 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 Vancouver back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered greater
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 best to reduce
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers 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 accepted that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers undergo balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers
can discover much about Vancouver back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
