KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Groton chiropractor works with Groton back pain
patients every day. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 affects 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 alters the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers say significantly.
(1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office gets it. It’s wise
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office encourages slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Groton CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office shares that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be well received
by Groton back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered 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 best to reduce
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Groton chiropractor at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office test muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
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 a variety of physical tasks than those who
don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers have balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office
can discover much about Groton back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
