KINESIOPHOBIA. That’s big word. It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Ottawa chiropractor works with Ottawa back pain
patients all the time. It’s important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is important,
and The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain does not just alter
the back and spine. It affects 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 alters the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by
how much? Researchers write that it is altered significantly.
(1) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider understands. It’s wise
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can escape
it. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider urges slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Ottawa CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be welcomed
by Ottawa 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 greater
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 decrease
pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your
Ottawa chiropractor at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is known that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those who
don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers experience balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider
can find out much about Ottawa back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
