KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something
your Buffalo, NY chiropractor works with Buffalo, NY back pain
patients every day. It is important to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is critical,
and The Novelli Wellness Center 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 influences 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 affects the
back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But just
how much? Researchers report significantly.
(1) The Novelli Wellness Center understands. It’s reasonable
to not desire to prompt such back pain if one can avoid
it. The Novelli Wellness Center urges slow but sure
return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Buffalo, NY CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
The Novelli Wellness Center reports that research studies revealed
improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar
spinal stenosis. This would certainly be well received
by Buffalo, NY back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US
adults. Manual therapy and
individualized exercise programs offered greater
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 best to decrease
pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your
Buffalo, NY chiropractor at The Novelli Wellness Center assess muscle
activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance stance
in older patients and those with chronic low back pain
because it is accepted that chronic low back
pain patients and older people respond with different
muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those without chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers have balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is worse. (3) The Novelli Wellness Center
can find out much about Buffalo, NY back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
