Ask any Fort Wayne back pain sufferer, and s/he will agree: back pain changes
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires
some thought…or triggers total avoidance.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows back pain changes motions.
Researchers continue to study just how and how much it alters
movement. With chiropractic care, your Fort Wayne chiropractor aims to help you regain the simplicity of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Patients with low back pain move atypically.
They often change the way they move to avoid
pain. They’ll walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual.
A recent study analyzed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors wound up stating
that restricted lumbar spinal mobility in all planes brought
on by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study found
that the kind 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) Determining just how much
spinal kinematics are affected by back pain is your Fort Wayne chiropractor’s
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare professional like your
Fort Wayne chiropractor analyze new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that check our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions demanded by activities of
daily living are valuable. Patients with low back pain reveal
considerably 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 showed
altered motor adaptability while doing various
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
is comprehensive to document just how much low back pain is impeding
your daily activities in order to return you to your activities of daily
living with the least
