KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Paramus chiropractor works with Paramus back pain
patients every day. It is important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain does not just affect
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.
Understandably such fear influences the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers report significantly.
(1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center understands. It is reasonable
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center encourages slow but sure
return to usual life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Paramus CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be well received
by Paramus back pain patients suffering with lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs provided 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 best to reduce
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 have balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center
can find out much about Paramus back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
