Back Pain Changes Auburn Spinal Movement

Any Auburn back pain sufferer will agree: back pain alters movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires some thought…or prompts total avoidance. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows back pain alters motions. Researchers continue to study just how and how much it changes movement. With chiropractic care, your Auburn chiropractor aims to help you regain the simplicity of movement you had before you experienced back pain.


Patients with low back pain move differently. They often change the way they move to evade pain. You will see them walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different. A recent study analyzed over 800 papers on the subject of altered kinematics. The authors concluded 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 affected the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with spinal deformity-related back pain showed greater differences in an array of biomechanical motions (like hip, spine, and knee torque) weighed against patients with non-specific low back pain. (2) Determining just how much spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is your Auburn chiropractor’s much-loved job.


When healthcare professional like your Auburn chiropractor evaluate new low back pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new patients’ ability to carry out motions demanded by activities of daily living are valuable. Patients with low back pain show 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 diverse repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking, sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is comprehensive to record the extent to which low back pain is impacting your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least possible trouble.
