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 stems
from the united contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, etc. Low back muscles may be weak and/or unstable making
them less helpful in supporting the spine. Exercise repeatedly shows its benefit in addressing
spinal instability that accompanies Pensacola
back pain. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center endoreses
exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.
SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE
Instability affects balance. Back pain
sufferers’ poor balance may result from badly
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. Sufferers with lumbar spine instability showed
greater issues with balance control, proprioception,
fear of movement, increased pain, and functional ability than sufferers
without such instability. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center checks
for instability in our Pensacola back pain patients and creates
a Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management treatment plan that includes
pain relieving spinal manipulation, nutrition, and exercise.
EXERCISE FOR SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE IMPROVEMENT
Exercise is a usual intervention for low back
pain patients no matter the treatment plan. For
subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is advantageous. Recently, two versions
of exercise were compared: 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 improved proprioception,
balance (as demonstrated by single leg standing with eyes open and
closed on stable and unstable surfaces), thickened muscles
of the transverse abdominis and lumbar multifidus, decreased
functional disability, and decreased fear of movement. Bonuses
affiliated with both types of exercise: no unpleasant
side-effects AND pain relief. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is always
checking for balance issues in our chiropractic patients.
Exercise that helps with Pensacola balance is so vital.
