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
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
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. (2)
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,
