KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Vancouver chiropractor works with Vancouver back pain
patients every day. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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 affects 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 say significantly.
(1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre gets it. It is wise
to not desire to prompt such back pain if one can avoid
it. Vancouver Spine Care Centre encourages slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Vancouver Spine Care Centre reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be welcomed
by Vancouver back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs delivered 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 superior to reduce
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Spine Care Centre assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it’s accepted that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who
don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers feel balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Vancouver Spine Care Centre
can discover much about Vancouver back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
