KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Millville chiropractor works with Millville 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 Wilson Family Chiropractic 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 influences 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 influences the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers write that it is altered significantly.
(1) Wilson Family Chiropractic understands. It’s wise
to not want to prompt such back pain if one can escape
it. Wilson Family Chiropractic encourages slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Millville CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Wilson Family Chiropractic shares that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be welcomed
by Millville 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 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
Millville chiropractor at Wilson Family Chiropractic assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is known that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those without chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers experience balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic
can discover much about Millville back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
