KINESIOPHOBIA. Now, there’s a word! It
means fear that moving may cause pain. It’s something
your La Grande chiropractor works with La Grande back pain
patients every day. It’s vital to
move and not fear movement. Life is motion. Motion is life. Movement is important,
and Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC 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 affects 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 report significantly.
(1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC gets it. It’s reasonable
to not want to prompt such back pain if one can escape
it. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC encourages slow and gradual
return to usual life motions and to do it one day at
MOVEMENT IS PART OF THE La Grande CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC 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 La Grande back pain patients who have lumbar
spine stenosis, the most common reason for 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 restore motion and function. Doctors like your
La Grande chiropractor at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC 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 various physical tasks than those who do not have chronic low back pain. Chronic low back
pain sufferers face balance issues, too.
Their trunk muscle activation during balance tasks is lower. (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC
can discover much about La Grande back pain patient’s
condition with some of the simplest tests…and
individualize the treatment plan as required: Cox® Technic,
nutrition and exercise.
