Back Pain Changes Largo Spinal Movement

Any 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.


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 much-loved job.


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 possible trouble.
