Johnson Chiropractic Calms Patients Fear Of Returned Back Pain With Chiropractic Care

KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something your Richmond chiropractor works with Richmond back pain patients all the time. It’s vital to move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is important, and Johnson 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 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 alters the back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by how much? Researchers report significantly. (1) Johnson Chiropractic gets it. It’s wise to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can avoid it. Johnson Chiropractic encourages slow but sure return to usual life motions and to take it one day at a time.

MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT HEALING PLAN

Johnson Chiropractic shares that research studies revealed improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. This would certainly be well received by Richmond back pain patients who have lumbar spine stenosis, the most common reason for 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.

BALANCE, MUSCLE AND BACK PAIN

Individualized treatment plans are superior to reduce pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson 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’s known that chronic low back pain patients and older people are different in their muscle responses to various physical tasks than those who don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back pain sufferers undergo balance issues, too. Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Johnson Chiropractic can discover much about Richmond back pain patient’s condition with some of the simplest tests…and individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic, nutrition and exercise.
