Oxford back pain sufferer will agree: back pain affects
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over takes lots of thought…or triggers total avoidance.
Satterwhite Chiropractic knows back pain alters motions.
Researchers keep studying just how and how much it changes
movement. With chiropractic care, your Oxford chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the simplicity of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Patients with low back pain move atypically.
They often change the way they move to prevent
pain. They will walk differently. They turn
around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different.
A new study reviewed over 800 papers on this
topic of altered kinematics. The authors asserted
that the limitation of lumbar spinal mobility in all planes caused by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study concluded
that the type of spinal disorder a patient affected
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand activity. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain demonstrated greater
differences in an array of biomechanical motions (like hip,
spine, and knee torque) compared to patients with
non-specific low back pain. (2) Determining just how much
spinal kinematics are affected by back pain is your Oxford chiropractor’s
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare professional like your
Oxford chiropractor examine new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that check our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain exhibit
greatly 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 showed
altered motor adaptability while doing various
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Satterwhite Chiropractic
is comprehensive 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
