Tonawanda Stability is Critical for Back Painand for Coping Today

Just a quick note on the current COVID-19. The CDC recommendations regarding how to cope are good. Take care of yourself, EXERCISE, eat healthy, breathe, connect, and hope. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation endorses the same…and adds see your Tonawanda chiropractor for extra stabilization and balance!

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation shares CDC advice on how to cope with coronavirus stress. 


Now, let’s consider exercise to not only stabilize YOU and your fellow Tonawanda chiropractic patients during times like these may triggering, but exercise to stabilize your spine during and after Tonawanda back pain episodes.


Stability and balance go together. Stability refers to how balance is controlled. Inhibited balance control is linked with less stability. Balance or rather a disruption of balance or the sense of stability is often observed in or described by musculoskeletal pain patients like those with back pain and neck pain. For this reason, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation observes every chiropractic patient carefully throughout their entire visit from the time you walk through the front door, down the hall to your treatment room, and out the door again. Observation is a valuable tool in the management of back pain and related leg pain, Tonawanda neck pain and any related arm pain. Researchers examined this topic of balance and its disruption, too. Recent studies reported on patients’ gait speed, their “timed up and go test” ability, step test and “sit-to-stand test.” Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation likes these tests. Some of our Tonawanda chiropractic patients will be curious about what we’re examining when we ask them to sit in a chair and stand up from that position and note how long it takes them to do it! We chiropractors are an inquisitive group! Trials like these reveal to your Tonawanda chiropractor a lot about your spinal condition. Another analysis of such studies found that manual therapy like spinal manipulation used at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation improved short-term stability measures. (1) Rest assured additional studies like these are underway, and one explicitly looking at how Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction alters these tests and ultimately the balance and stability of back pain patients is underway.


Many trials have previously demonstrated that numerous chronic musculoskeletal pain patients suffer falls and have balance issues. That is a big problem for older patients with such musculoskeletal pain as they manytimes also have stiffer, less coordinated gait, and poorer balance and muscle strength. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation recommends exercise for balance and stability.


The lumbar spine multifidus muscle is a known and very vital stabilizer for the spine. Soccer players know this! Researchers examined their multifidus muscles throughout soccer season. At rest while lying down, these players’ multifidus muscle thickness diminished. Those players with low back pain showed significant change at rest. (2) Australian football players with low back pain were to have the same issue while standing as well as lying down. (3) Both studies noted that body composition and body fat and mass were connected with the lumbar multifidus muscle size. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation has some exercise recommendations for our Tonawanda back pain patients to boost their multifidus muscles and improve their sense of balance and stability. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is ready to show them to you at your Tonawanda chiropractic appointment!
