Back Pain Changes Montreal Spinal Movement

Any 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.


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.


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 possible difficulty.
