KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Toronto chiropractor works with Toronto back pain
patients every day. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary,
and Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 influences the back pain sufferer’s
emotions and physicality, too.
Kinesiophobia is a more extreme fear of pain or re-injury upon movement.
No doubt such fear affects the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers report significantly.
(1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre gets it. It is reasonable
to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encourages slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Toronto CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by Toronto back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered 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
Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 accepted that chronic low back
pain patients and older people are different in their
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers have balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre
can discover much about Toronto back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
