Toronto back pain sufferer will agree: back pain affects
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires
some thought…or causes total avoidance.
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre knows back pain alters movements.
Researchers continue to study just how and how much it alters
motion. With chiropractic care, your Toronto chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the simplicity of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Back pain patients move differently.
They often change the way they move to evade
pain. You will see them walk differently. They turn
around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different.
A new study reviewed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors wound up stating
that restricted lumbar spinal mobility in all planes caused by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study concluded
that the type of spinal disorder a patient impacted
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain showed greater
differences in a variety of biomechanical motions (like hip,
spine, and knee torque) compared to patients with
non-specific low back pain. (2) Determining just how much
spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is the job your Toronto
chiropractor enjoys most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare professional like your
Toronto chiropractor evaluate new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that check our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain exhibit
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 showed
altered motor adaptability while doing various
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre
is comprehensive to document the
extent to which low back pain is impeding
your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least
