Back pain turns into the main focus when it
rears its head. The term
‘back pain’ is very generic though as back pain stems
from the mingled contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, etc. Low back muscles may be frail and/or unstable leacing
them less helpful in supporting the spine. Exercise repeatedly shows just how beneficial it is in addressing
spinal instability that accompanies Fort Wayne
back pain. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 who don’t have instability, and healthy
subjects. Those with lumbar spine instability showed
greater problems with balance control, proprioception,
fear of movement, more pain, and functional ability than those
without such instability. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic tests
for instability in our Fort Wayne 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 common intervention for low back
pain patients regardless of the treatment plan. For
subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is beneficial. Recently, two types
of exercise were assessed: core stabilization and strengthening
exercise. A month of training
for 30 minutes a session three times a week demonstrated that
core stabilization produced significantly more improvement than
strengthening. Core stabilization improved 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, decreased
functional disability, and reduced fear of movement. Bonuses
affiliated with both types of exercise: no adverse effects AND pain relief. (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is always
concerned about balance issues in our chiropractic patients.
Exercise that helps with Fort Wayne balance is so important.
