KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Fernandina Beach chiropractor works with Fernandina Beach back pain
patients every day. It is important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Amelia Chiropractic Clinic 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.
Understandably 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic understands. It is wise
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic urges slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Fernandina Beach CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic shares that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be welcomed
by Fernandina Beach back pain patients who have 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 superior to reduce
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
Fernandina Beach chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is established that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
can discover much about Fernandina Beach back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
