KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Colorado Springs chiropractor works with Colorado Springs back pain
patients all the time. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain does not just alter
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.
Understandably such fear alters the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers report significantly.
(1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR gets it. It is reasonable
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR encourages slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Colorado Springs CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 Colorado Springs back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs provided 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 return motion and function. Doctors like your
Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 various physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers undergo balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR
can discover much about Colorado Springs back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
