Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic Calms Patients Fear Of Returned Back Pain With Chiropractic Care

KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It means fear that moving may cause pain. It is something your Eugene chiropractor works with Eugene back pain patients all the time. It’s important to move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is necessary, and Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 alters the back pain sufferer’s quality of life, disability and pain intensity. But by how much? Researchers say significantly. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic understands. It’s reasonable to not desire to trigger such back pain if one can escape it. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic urges slow and gradual return to everyday life motions and to do it one day at a time.

MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE Eugene CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT HEALING PLAN

Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic shares that research studies revealed improvement in walking capacity with non-surgical care for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. This would surely be welcomed by Eugene back pain patients who have 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 best to decrease pain and return motion and function. Doctors like your Eugene chiropractor at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 established 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 feel balance issues, too. Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic can find out much about Eugene back pain patient’s condition with some of the simplest tests…and individualize the treatment plan as necessary: Cox® Technic, nutrition and exercise.
