The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider Calms Patients Fear Of Returned Back Pain With Chiropractic Care

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 a time.

MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Ottawa CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT HEALING PLAN

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.

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.
