KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your Montreal chiropractor works with Montreal back pain
patients every day. It is vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is important,
and Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is all about getting our chiropractic
patients moving and keeping them moving.
FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE
Chronic back pain doesn’t just alter
the back and spine. It alters the back pain sufferer’s
emotions and physicality, too.
Kinesiophobia is a more extreme fear of pain or re-injury upon movement.
Understandably 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic gets it. It is reasonable
to not want to trigger such back pain if one can avoid
it. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages slow and gradual
return to everyday life motions and to take it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Montreal CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic reports that research studies divulged
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received
by Montreal back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs delivered better
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 return motion and function. Doctors like your
Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it’s established 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 face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
can discover much about Montreal back pain patient’s
condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
