KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Sandy Springs chiropractor works with Sandy Springs back pain
patients every day. It’s vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Cross Chiropractic Center is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain does not just alter
the back and spine. It influences 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 alters the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers write that it is altered significantly.
(1) Cross Chiropractic Center gets it. It’s wise
to not desire to prompt such back pain if one can avoid
it. Cross Chiropractic Center urges slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Cross Chiropractic Center reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be well received
by Sandy Springs back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs provided 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 decrease
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center 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 feel balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center
can discover much about Sandy Springs back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
