KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Malverne chiropractor works with Malverne back pain
patients all the time. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Malverne Health & Wellness is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain doesn’t just alter
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.
Understandably 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) Malverne Health & Wellness gets it. It is wise
to not desire to prompt such back pain if one can escape
it. Malverne Health & Wellness encourages slow but sure
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Malverne CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Malverne Health & Wellness reports that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be welcomed
by Malverne back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs provided 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 best to decrease
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is established that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who
don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers have balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness
can find out much about Malverne back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
