Pflugerville back pain sufferer will agree: back pain affects
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires
some thought…or prompts total avoidance.
Pflugerville Wellness Center knows back pain alters movements.
Researchers continue to study just how and how much it alters
motion. With chiropractic care, your Pflugerville chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the ease of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Back pain patients move atypically.
They often change the way they move to evade
pain. They will walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual.
A recent study reviewed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors concluded
that restricted lumbar spinal mobility in all planes brought
on by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study found
that the kind 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 impacted by back pain is the job your Pflugerville
chiropractor relishes most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
Pflugerville chiropractor analyze new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new
patients’ ability to perform motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain show
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 exhibited
altered motor adaptability while doing diverse
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Pflugerville Wellness Center
is thorough to document the
extent to which low back pain is affecting
your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least
