Back pain becomes the focus when it
takes over every thought in a day. The term
‘back pain’ is very generic though as back pain arises
from the combined contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, etc. Low back muscles may be frail and/or unstable leacing
them less helpful in supporting the spine. Exercise continued to
show just how beneficial it is in addressing
spinal instability associated with West Palm Beach
back pain. Moses Chiropractic endoreses
exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.
SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE
Instability affects balance. Back pain
sufferers’ troubled balance may be caused by 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. Those with lumbar spine instability showed
more issues with balance control, proprioception,
fear of movement, increased pain, and functional ability than those
who don’t have such instability. (1) Moses Chiropractic tests
for instability in our West Palm Beach back pain patients and designs
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 common intervention for low back
pain patients no matter the treatment plan. For
subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is beneficial. Not long ago, two types
of exercise were assessed: core stabilization and strengthening
exercise. Four weeks of three-times-a-day 30-minute-sessions demonstrated that
core stabilization produced 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
of either exercise: no adverse effects AND pain relief. (2) Moses Chiropractic is always
checking for balance issues in our chiropractic patients.
Exercise that helps with West Palm Beach balance is so important.
