Back Pain Changes Manchester Spinal Movement

Ask any Manchester back pain sufferer, and s/he will agree: back pain affects movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires some thought…or causes total avoidance. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows back pain changes motions. Researchers continue to study just how and how much it alters movement. With chiropractic care, your Manchester chiropractor aims to help you regain the ease of movement you had before you experienced back pain.


Back pain patients move atypically. They often change the way they move to prevent pain. They’ll walk differently. They turn around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different. A new study analyzed over 800 papers on this topic of altered kinematics. The authors concluded 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 type of spinal disorder a patient impacted the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand activity. Patients with spinal deformity-related back pain showed greater differences in an array of biomechanical motions (like hip, spine, and knee torque) weighed against patients with non-specific low back pain. (2) Figuring out just how much spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is your Manchester chiropractor’s much-loved job.


When healthcare providers like your Manchester chiropractor analyze new low back pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new patients’ ability to carry out motions demanded by activities of daily living are valuable. Patients with low back pain reveal greatly altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients with low back pain showed motion changes in the lumbar spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers exhibited 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 Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is systematic to document the extent to which low back pain is impeding your daily activities in order to return you to your activities of daily living with the least possible trouble.
