KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Baton Rouge chiropractor works with Baton Rouge back pain
patients every day. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain doesn’t 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.
Understandably such fear alters the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers say significantly.
(1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understands. It is wise
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation encourages slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation reports that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be welcomed
by Baton Rouge back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for 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 superior to reduce
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
Baton Rouge chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation test muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it’s accepted that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers have balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation
can find out much about Baton Rouge back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
