KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Minster chiropractor works with Minster back pain
patients every day. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is important,
and Minster Chiropractic Center 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 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 influences the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers write that it is altered significantly.
(1) Minster Chiropractic Center gets it. It is wise
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. Minster Chiropractic Center encourages slow and gradual
return to everyday life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Minster CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Minster Chiropractic Center 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 Minster 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
Minster chiropractor at Minster Chiropractic Center 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 various physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers experience balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Minster Chiropractic Center
can discover much about Minster back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
