Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn Calms Patients Fear Of Returned Back Pain With Chiropractic Care

KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something your Ashburn chiropractor works with Ashburn back pain patients all the time. It is vital to move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is important, and Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is all about getting our chiropractic patients moving and keeping them moving.

FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE

Chronic back pain does not just affect the back and spine. It influences 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 just how much? Researchers say significantly. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn understands. It’s wise to not want to prompt such back pain if one can escape it. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn urges slow but sure return to usual life motions and to do it one day at a time.

MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT HEALING PLAN

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn shares that research studies revealed improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received by Ashburn back pain patients who have lumbar spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US adults.  Manual therapy and individualized exercise programs provided better short-term symptom improvement, physical function and walking capacity than medical care or group exercise.

BALANCE, MUSCLE AND BACK PAIN

Individualized treatment plans are best to decrease pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn test muscle activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance in older patients and those with chronic low back pain because it is accepted that chronic low back pain patients and older people are different in their muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back pain sufferers feel balance issues, too. Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can find out much about Ashburn back pain patient’s condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic, nutrition and exercise.
