KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Pflugerville chiropractor works with Pflugerville back pain
patients every day. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is important,
and Pflugerville 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 alters 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 influences the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers say significantly.
(1) Pflugerville Wellness Center understands. It’s reasonable
to not desire to prompt such back pain if one can escape
it. Pflugerville Wellness Center encourages slow but sure
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Pflugerville CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Pflugerville Wellness Center 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 Pflugerville back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs delivered 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 superior to reduce
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Pflugerville chiropractor at Pflugerville 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 is established that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those without chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers feel balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Pflugerville Wellness Center
can find out much about Pflugerville back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
