Back pain becomes the focus when it
takes over every thought in a day. The term
‘back pain’ is quite generic though as back pain stems
from the combined contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, etc. Low back muscles may be weak and/or unstable leacing
them less helpful in supporting the spine. Exercise continued to
show just how beneficial it is in addressing
spinal instability that accompanies Tonawanda
back pain. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation highly recommends
exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.
SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE
Instability impacts balance. Back pain
sufferers’ poor balance may result from poorly
coordinated neuromuscular control and altered spine stability. A new
study contrasted 3 groups: subacute non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) sufferers with
lumbar instability, those without instability, and healthy
subjects. Sufferers with lumbar spine instability showed
more issues with balance control, proprioception,
fear of movement, more pain, and functional ability than those
without such instability. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation tests
for instability in our Tonawanda back pain patients and creates
a Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management treatment plan that involves
pain relieving spinal manipulation, nutrition, and exercise.
EXERCISE FOR SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE IMPROVEMENT
Exercise is a usual intervention for low back
pain patients no matter the treatment plan. For
subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is advantageous. Recently, two types
of exercise were assessed: core stabilization and strengthening
exercise. A month of three-times-a-day 30-minute-sessions showed that
core stabilization generated significantly more improvement than
strengthening. Core stabilization enhanced proprioception,
balance (as demonstrated by single leg standing with eyes open and
closed on stable and unstable surfaces), muscle thickness
of the transverse abdominis and lumbar multifidus, reduced
functional disability, and decreased fear of movement. Bonuses
affiliated with both types of exercise: no adverse effects AND pain relief. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is always
checking for balance issues in our chiropractic patients.
Exercise that helps with Tonawanda balance is so vital.
