Millville back pain sufferer will agree: back pain alters
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires
some thought…or causes total avoidance.
Wilson Family Chiropractic knows back pain changes movements.
Researchers continue to study just how and how much it alters
motion. With chiropractic care, your Millville chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the simplicity of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Patients with low back pain move differently.
They often alter the way they move to avoid
pain. They will walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual.
A recent study reviewed over 800 papers on this
topic of altered kinematics. The authors asserted
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) Figuring out just how much
spinal kinematics are affected by back pain is the job your Millville
chiropractor enjoys most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
Millville chiropractor evaluate new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that check our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain reveal
considerably altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients
with low back pain demonstrated motion changes in the lumbar
spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers exhibited
altered motor adaptability while performing a variety of
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Wilson Family Chiropractic
is systematic to document the
extent to which low back pain is affecting
your daily activities in order to return you to your activities of daily
living with the least
