KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Fort Wayne chiropractor works with Fort Wayne back pain
patients all the time. It is important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC 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 influences the back pain sufferer’s
emotions and physicality, too.
Kinesiophobia is a more extreme fear of pain or re-injury upon movement.
No doubt such fear influences the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers report significantly.
(1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC gets it. It is wise
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC encourages slow and gradual
return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by Fort Wayne back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for 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 return motion and function. Doctors like your
Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
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 feel balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC
can find out much about Fort Wayne back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
