Back Pain Changes Pflugerville Spinal Movement

Any 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.


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.


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 possible difficulty.
