KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your West Palm Beach chiropractor works with West Palm Beach back pain
patients all the time. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Moses Chiropractic 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 affects 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 affects the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers say significantly.
(1) Moses Chiropractic gets it. It is wise
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. Moses Chiropractic urges slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Moses Chiropractic reports 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 West Palm Beach back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered 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 reduce
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
West Palm Beach chiropractor at Moses 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 are different in their
muscle responses to various physical tasks than those without chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers have balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Moses Chiropractic
can discover much about West Palm Beach back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
