Spengel Chiropractic Calms Patients Fear Of Returned Back Pain With Chiropractic Care

KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It denote fear that moving may cause pain. It is something your McHenry chiropractor works with McHenry back pain patients every day. It is important to move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary, and Spengel Chiropractic is all about getting our chiropractic patients moving and keeping them moving.

FEAR OF MOVING…AND MORE

Chronic back pain doesn’t just affect the back and spine. It alters 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 write that it is altered significantly. (1) Spengel Chiropractic understands. It’s reasonable to not desire to prompt such back pain if one can escape it. Spengel Chiropractic encourages slow but sure return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at a time.

MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE McHenry CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT HEALING PLAN

Spengel Chiropractic shares that research studies divulged improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. This would surely be well received by McHenry back pain patients suffering with lumbar spine stenosis, the most common cause of spine surgery in US adults.  Manual therapy and individualized exercise programs provided greater short-term symptom improvement, physical function and walking capacity than medical care or group exercise.

BALANCE, MUSCLE AND BACK PAIN

Individualized treatment plans are superior to reduce pain and restore motion and function. Doctors like your McHenry chiropractor at Spengel Chiropractic assess muscle activation and balance ability with a one-legged balance posture in older patients and those with chronic low back pain because it’s established that chronic low back pain patients and older people are different in their muscle responses to a variety of physical tasks than those who don’t have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back pain sufferers undergo balance issues, too. Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Spengel Chiropractic can discover much about McHenry back pain patient’s condition with some of the most unassuming tests…and individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic, nutrition and exercise.
