KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your San Jose chiropractor works with San Jose back pain
patients all the time. It’s vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Chiropractic Solutions 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 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) Chiropractic Solutions gets it. It’s reasonable
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Chiropractic Solutions encourages slow but sure
return to usual life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE San Jose CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Chiropractic Solutions reports that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by San Jose 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 reduce
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
San Jose chiropractor at Chiropractic Solutions test muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it’s accepted that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Chiropractic Solutions
can find out much about San Jose back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
