Severna Park 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 triggers total avoidance.
Back And Neck Care Center knows back pain changes movements.
Researchers keep studying just how and how much it alters
movement. With chiropractic care, your Severna Park chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the ease of
movement you had before you had back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY 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 unusual.
A new study reviewed over 800 papers on this
topic of altered kinematics. The authors wound up stating
that restricted lumbar spinal mobility in all planes caused by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study concluded
that the kind of spinal disorder a patient impacted
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) weighed against patients with
non-specific low back pain. (2) Determining just how much
spinal kinematics are affected by back pain is your Severna Park chiropractor’s
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
Severna Park chiropractor examine 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 exhibit
considerably altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients
with low back pain demonstrated motion changes in the lumbar
spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers exhibited
altered motor adaptability while performing various
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Back And Neck Care Center
is systematic to document just how much low back pain is impeding
your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least
