Richmond back pain sufferer will agree: back pain affects
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires
some thought…or triggers total avoidance.
Johnson Chiropractic knows back pain changes movements.
Researchers keep studying just how and how much it changes
motion. With chiropractic care, your Richmond chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the simplicity of
movement you had before you had back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Back pain patients move atypically.
They often alter the way they move to avoid
pain. They’ll walk differently. They turn
around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual.
A new study reviewed over 800 papers on this
topic of altered kinematics. The authors wound up stating
that restricted lumbar spinal mobility in all planes caused by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study found
that the type of spinal disorder a patient impacted
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain demonstrated greater
differences in an array of biomechanical motions (like hip,
spine, and knee torque) weighed against patients with
non-specific low back pain. (2) Figuring out just how much
spinal kinematics are affected by back pain is the job your Richmond
chiropractor enjoys most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare professional like your
Richmond chiropractor examine new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that check our new
patients’ ability to perform motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain reveal
considerably altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients
with low back pain showed motion changes in the lumbar
spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers showed
altered motor adaptability while doing a variety of
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Johnson Chiropractic
is comprehensive to record the
extent to which low back pain is impacting
your daily activities in order to return you to your activities of daily
living with the least
