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.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY 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
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
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
