Groton back pain sufferer will agree: back pain changes
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over takes lots of thought…or prompts total avoidance.
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows back pain alters movements.
Researchers continue to study just how and how much it changes
movement. With chiropractic care, your Groton chiropractor is
focused on helping you regain the simplicity of
movement you had before you had back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Back pain patients move atypically.
They often alter the way they move to evade
pain. They will walk differently. They turn
around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different.
A recent study analyzed over 800 papers on this
topic of altered kinematics. The authors wound up stating
that the limitation of lumbar spinal mobility in all planes caused by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study concluded
that the type of spinal disorder a patient impacted
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain demonstrated greater
differences in an array of biomechanical motions (like hip,
spine, and knee torque) compared to patients with
non-specific low back pain. (2) Figuring out just how much
spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is the job your Groton
chiropractor relishes most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare professional like your
Groton chiropractor examine new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions demanded by activities of
daily living are valuable. Patients with low back pain exhibit
considerably altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients
with low back pain showed motion changes in the lumbar
spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers showed
altered motor adaptability while doing a variety of
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office
is systematic to document the
extent to which low back pain is impacting
your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least
