Montreal back pain sufferer will agree: back pain changes
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires
some thought…or causes total avoidance.
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows back pain alters motions.
Researchers keep studying just how and how much it changes
movement. With chiropractic care, your Montreal chiropractor is
focused on helping you get back the ease of
movement you had before you had back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Back pain patients move atypically.
They often change the way they move to avoid
pain. They will walk differently. They turn
around differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are unusual.
A new study reviewed over 800 papers on this
topic 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 kind of spinal disorder a patient impacted
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand activity. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain showed greater
differences in a variety of biomechanical motions (like hip,
spine, and knee torque) compared to patients with
non-specific low back pain. (2) Determining just how much
spinal kinematics are impacted by back pain is the job your Montreal
chiropractor enjoys most.
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
Montreal chiropractor evaluate new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new
patients’ ability to perform motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain reveal
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 exhibited
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. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
is comprehensive to record just how much low back pain is impacting
your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least
