Ashburn back pain sufferer will agree: back pain changes
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires
some thought…or causes total avoidance.
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows back pain changes motions.
Researchers keep studying just how and how much it alters
movement. With chiropractic care, your Ashburn chiropractor aims to help you regain the ease of
movement you had before you had back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Back pain patients move atypically.
They often alter the way they move to prevent
pain. They will walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual.
A recent study analyzed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors asserted
that the limitation of lumbar spinal mobility in all planes brought
on by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study found
that the type of spinal disorder a patient affected
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain demonstrated greater
differences in an array 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 impacted by back pain is the job your Ashburn
chiropractor enjoys most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
Ashburn chiropractor evaluate new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that check our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions demanded by activities of
daily living are valuable. Patients with low back pain exhibit
greatly altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients
with low back pain showed motion changes in the lumbar
spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers showed
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 Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
is comprehensive to document the
extent to which low back pain is impeding
your daily activities in order to return you to your activities of daily
living with the least
