KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Fort Wayne chiropractor works with Fort Wayne back pain
patients all the time. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 affects 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 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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic understands. It’s reasonable
to not want to prompt such back pain if one can escape
it. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic encourages slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic shares that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be welcomed
by Fort Wayne back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of 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 decrease
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Fort Wayne chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
can find out much about Fort Wayne back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
