Ask any Fort Wayne back pain sufferer, and s/he will agree: back pain affects
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over takes lots of thought…or triggers total avoidance.
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows back pain changes motions.
Researchers keep studying just how and how much it changes
motion. With chiropractic care, your Fort Wayne chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the simplicity of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Patients with low back pain move differently.
They often alter the way they move to evade
pain. They’ll walk differently. They turn
around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual.
A recent study analyzed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors concluded
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 impacted
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand activity. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain showed greater
differences in a variety of biomechanical motions (like hip,
spine, and knee torque) weighed against patients with
non-specific low back pain. (2) Determining just how much
spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is the job your Fort Wayne
chiropractor enjoys most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
Fort Wayne chiropractor evaluate new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain show
considerably altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients
with low back pain showed motion changes in the lumbar
spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers exhibited
altered motor adaptability while doing various
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
is thorough to record the
extent to which low back pain is impeding
your daily activities in order to return you to your activities of daily
living with the least
