KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Plymouth chiropractor works with Plymouth back pain
patients all the time. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is important,
and Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 alters 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 say significantly.
(1) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology gets it. It’s wise
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology encourages slow and gradual
return to everyday life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Plymouth CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology reports that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by Plymouth back pain patients who have 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 decrease
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
Plymouth chiropractor at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 known that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those without chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology
can find out much about Plymouth back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
