Pensacola Back Pain and Associated Spinal Instability Helped by Exercise to Improve Balance and More

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.


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 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.
