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

STABILITY AND BALANCE AND BACK PAIN

Stability and balance go together. Stability refers to how balance is controlled. Inhibited balance control is associated with decreased stability. Balance or rather a disruption of balance or the sense of stability is often seen in or reported by musculoskeletal pain patients who have back pain and neck pain. For this reason, Moses Chiropractic watches every chiropractic patient carefully throughout their whole 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 helpful tool in the management of back pain and related leg pain, West Palm Beach neck pain and any related arm pain. Researchers studied this topic of balance and its disruption, too. Recent studies described patients’ gait speed, their “timed up and go test” ability, step test and “sit-to-stand test.” Moses Chiropractic likes these tests. Some of our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients will wonder what we’re looking for when we ask them to sit in a chair and stand up from the chair and time them! We chiropractors are an inquisitive group! Trials like these reveal to your West Palm Beach chiropractor a lot about your spinal condition. Another analysis of similar studies stated that manual therapy like spinal manipulation used at Moses Chiropractic improved short-term stability measures. (1) Be certain more studies like these are ongoing, and one explicitly examining how Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction influences these tests and ultimately the balance and stability of back pain patients is in its first trial.

BALANCE AND FALLS

Many trials have already shown that numerous chronic musculoskeletal pain patients experience falls and have balance issues. That is a foremost problem for older patients with such musculoskeletal pain as they often also have stiffer, less coordinated gait, and worse balance and muscle strength. (1) Moses Chiropractic recommends exercise for balance and stability.

EXERCISE FOR STABILITY AND BALANCE

The lumbar spine multifidus muscle is a known and very important stabilizer for the spine. Soccer players get this! Researchers examined their multifidus muscles during the soccer season. At rest while lying down, these players’ multifidus muscle thickness decreased. 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 associated with the lumbar multifidus muscle size. Moses Chiropractic has some exercise recommendations for our West Palm Beach back pain patients to boost their multifidus muscles and improve their sense of balance and stability. Moses Chiropractic is ready to give them to you at your West Palm Beach chiropractic visit!
