KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Oxford chiropractor works with Oxford back pain
patients every day. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Satterwhite Chiropractic is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain doesn’t just alter
the back and spine. It affects the back pain sufferer’s
emotions and physicality, too.
Kinesiophobia is a more extreme fear of pain or re-injury upon movement.
No doubt such fear influences the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers say significantly.
(1) Satterwhite Chiropractic understands. It’s reasonable
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. Satterwhite Chiropractic urges slow and gradual
return to everyday life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Oxford CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Satterwhite Chiropractic shares that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be welcomed
by Oxford back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs delivered greater
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 superior to reduce
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic test muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is accepted that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic
can discover much about Oxford back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
