Back Pain Changes Severna Park Spinal Movement

Any 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.


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 much-loved job.


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 possible trouble.
