KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Manchester chiropractor works with Manchester back pain
patients all the time. It is important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries 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 alters 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 write that it is altered significantly.
(1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries gets it. It’s reasonable
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries encourages slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Manchester CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries shares that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be well received
by Manchester back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for 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 return motion and function. Doctors like your
Manchester chiropractor at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is established 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 face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
