KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Watertown chiropractor works with Watertown back pain
patients every day. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and Watertown Wellness Center is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain doesn’t 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.
No doubt such fear affects the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers report significantly.
(1) Watertown Wellness Center gets it. It is reasonable
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Watertown Wellness Center urges slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Watertown CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Watertown Wellness Center shares that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by Watertown back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered 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 return motion and function. Doctors like your
Watertown chiropractor at Watertown Wellness Center assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it’s established that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who
don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Watertown Wellness Center
can discover much about Watertown back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
