KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Brooks chiropractor works with Brooks back pain
patients every day. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 alters 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 report significantly.
(1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands. It is reasonable
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Soft Health and Healing Clinic urges slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Brooks CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Soft Health and Healing Clinic reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be welcomed
by Brooks back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered greater
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 best to reduce
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it’s known that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those without chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers undergo balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic
can discover much about Brooks back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
