Back Pain Changes Fort Wayne Spinal Movement

Any Fort Wayne back pain sufferer will agree: back pain alters movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over takes lots of thought…or prompts total avoidance. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows back pain changes movements. Researchers keep studying just how and how much it changes movement. With chiropractic care, your Fort Wayne 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 differently. They often alter the way they move to avoid pain. They’ll walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different. A recent study reviewed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors wound up stating that the limitation of lumbar spinal mobility in all planes brought on by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study found that the type of spinal disorder a patient affected the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with spinal deformity-related back pain demonstrated greater differences in a variety of biomechanical motions (like hip, spine, and knee torque) compared to patients with non-specific low back pain. (2) Figuring out just how much spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is the job your Fort Wayne chiropractor relishes most.


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 perform motions demanded by activities of daily living 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 a variety of 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 systematic to record the extent to which low back pain is impacting your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least possible difficulty.
