Tonawanda Back Pain and Associated Spinal Instability Helped by Exercise to Improve Balance and More

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.


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 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.
