Back Pain Changes Murfreesboro Spinal Movement

Ask any Murfreesboro back pain sufferer, and s/he will agree: back pain affects movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over requires some thought…or causes total avoidance. Most Chiropractic Clinic knows back pain alters motions. Researchers keep studying just how and how much it changes movement. With chiropractic care, your Murfreesboro chiropractor is focused on helping you get back the ease of movement you had before you had back pain.


Patients with low back pain move atypically. They often change the way they move to prevent pain. You will see them walk differently. They turn around 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 type of spinal disorder a patient impacted the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with spinal deformity-related back pain showed greater differences in a variety of biomechanical motions (like hip, spine, and knee torque) compared to patients with non-specific low back pain. (2) Figuring out just how much spinal kinematics are affected by back pain is your Murfreesboro chiropractor’s much-loved job.


When healthcare providers like your Murfreesboro chiropractor evaluate new low back pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that check our new patients’ ability to perform motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain show greatly altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients with low back pain showed 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 Most Chiropractic Clinic is thorough to record the extent to which low back pain is impacting your daily activities in order to return you to your activities of daily living with the least possible trouble.
