Back Pain Changes Nashua Spinal Movement

Any Nashua back pain sufferer will agree: back pain alters movement. Sitting down takes more time. Standing up is slower. Bending over takes lots of thought…or triggers total avoidance. Moriarty Chiropractic knows back pain changes motions. Researchers keep studying just how and how much it changes movement. With chiropractic care, your Nashua chiropractor is focused on helping you get back the simplicity of movement you had before you had back pain.


Back pain patients move atypically. They often change the way they move to avoid pain. They’ll 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 restricted lumbar spinal mobility in all planes brought on by low back pain was statistically significant. (1) Another study concluded that the kind of spinal disorder a patient affected the biomechanics of the sit-to-stand movement. Patients with spinal deformity-related back pain showed greater differences in an array of biomechanical motions (like hip, spine, and knee torque) weighed against patients with non-specific low back pain. (2) Figuring out just how much spinal kinematics are affected by back pain is the job your Nashua chiropractor relishes most.


When healthcare providers like your Nashua chiropractor analyze new low back pain patients, tests like sit-to-stand that assess our new patients’ ability to perform motions that daily activities demand are valuable. Patients with low back pain exhibit considerably altered kinematics, motions, of the spine. (3) Patients with low back pain demonstrated 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 Moriarty Chiropractic is systematic to record just how much low back pain is impeding your daily activities with a goal to get you back to doing them again with the least possible difficulty.
