Largo back pain sufferer will agree: back pain affects
movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires
some thought…or causes total avoidance.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows back pain changes movements.
Researchers keep studying just how and how much it changes
movement. With chiropractic care, your Largo chiropractor aims to help you get back the ease of
movement you had before you experienced back pain.
SPINAL MOVEMENT ALTERED BY BACK PAIN
Back pain patients move atypically.
They often change the way they move to prevent
pain. They’ll walk differently. They bend differently. Their spinal kinematics – motions – are different.
A new study reviewed over 800 papers on this
topic of altered kinematics. The authors concluded
that the limitation of lumbar spinal mobility in all planes caused by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study found
that the kind of spinal disorder a patient affected
the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand activity. Patients with
spinal deformity-related back pain demonstrated greater
differences in an array of biomechanical motions (like hip,
spine, and knee torque) weighed against patients with
non-specific low back pain. (2) Figuring out just how much
spinal kinematics are affected by back pain is your Largo chiropractor’s
TESTING SPINAL MOVEMENT
When healthcare providers like your
Largo chiropractor examine new low back
pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that check our new
patients’ ability to carry out motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain reveal
greatly altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients
with low back pain demonstrated motion changes in the lumbar
spine, hip and trunk. (4) Chronic non-specific low back pain sufferers showed
altered motor adaptability while doing a variety of
repetitive functional tasks like flexion, extension, lifting, walking,
sit-to-stand-to-sit motions. (5) The chiropractic spinal examination at Hollstrom & Associates Inc
is thorough to document the
extent to which low back pain is impeding
your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least
