Fernandina Beach back pain sufferer will agree: back pain changes
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires
some thought…or prompts total avoidance.
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows back pain alters motions.
Researchers continue to study just how and how much it changes
movement. With chiropractic care, your Fernandina Beach chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the ease of
movement you had before you had back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Patients with low back pain move atypically.
They often alter the way they move to avoid
pain. You will see them walk differently. They turn
around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different.
A new study reviewed over 800 papers on this
topic of altered kinematics. The authors wound up stating
that restricted lumbar spinal mobility in all planes brought
on by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study concluded
that the type of spinal disorder a patient affected
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. 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 Fernandina Beach
chiropractor relishes most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
Fernandina Beach chiropractor evaluate new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new
patients’ ability to perform 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 doing diverse
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
is systematic to document just how much low back pain is impacting
your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least
