Now, let us consider exercise to not only stabilize YOU and your fellow Fort Wayne chiropractic patients during times like these may provoking, but exercise to stabilize your spine while and following your Fort Wayne 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 linked with reduced stability. Balance or rather a loss of balance or the sense of stability is often seen in or described by musculoskeletal pain patients who experience back pain and neck pain. Therefore, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic watches every chiropractic patient meticulously during their entire visit door to door. Observation is a valuable tool in the management of back pain and related leg pain, Fort Wayne neck pain and any related arm pain. Researchers examined 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.” Aaron Chiropractic Clinic likes these tests. Some of our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients will be curious about what we are looking for when we ask them to sit in a chair and stand up from the chair and time them! We chiropractors are a curious group! Tests like these tell your Fort Wayne chiropractor a lot about your spinal condition. Another analysis of such studies found that manual therapy like spinal manipulation used at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic enhanced short-term stability measures. (1) Rest assured more studies like these are in progress, and one specifically studying how Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction alters these tests and ultimately the balance and stability of back pain patients is in an initial clinical trial.

BALANCE AND FALLS

Many trials have previously demonstrated that many chronic musculoskeletal pain patients suffer falls and have balance issues. That is a foremost issue for older patients with such musculoskeletal pain as they manytimes also have stiffer, less coordinated gait, and poorer balance and muscle strength. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic 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 studied their multifidus muscles throughout soccer season. At rest while lying down, these players’ multifidus muscle thickness decreased. Those players with low back pain demonstrated significant change at rest. (2) Australian football players with low back pain were to have the same issue while standing and at rest. (3) Both studies said that body composition and body fat and mass were connected with the lumbar multifidus muscle size. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic has some exercise recommendations for our Fort Wayne back pain patients to boost their multifidus muscles and improve their sense of balance and stability. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is ready to show them to you at your Fort Wayne chiropractic visit!
