Back Pain Changes Fernandina Beach Spinal Movement

Any 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.


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.


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 possible difficulty.
