Back pain becomes the focus when it
occurs. The term
‘back pain’ is quite general though as back pain stems
from the united contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, and
more. Low back muscles may be frail and/or unstable making
them less helpful in supporting the spine. Exercise continued to
show its benefit in addressing
spinal instability associated with Baton Rouge
back pain. Spine & Sports Rehab Center encourages
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 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. Those with lumbar spine instability showed
greater issues with balance control, proprioception,
fear of movement, increased pain, and functional ability than those
who don’t have such instability. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center tests
for instability in our Baton Rouge back pain patients and designs
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 usual intervention for low back
pain patients regardless of the treatment plan. For
subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is beneficial. Recently, two versions
of exercise were assessed: core stabilization and strengthening
exercise. A month of three-times-a-day 30-minute-sessions showed that
core stabilization produced significantly more improvement than
strengthening. Core stabilization improved proprioception,
balance (as shown 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 reduced fear of movement. Bonuses
affiliated with both types of exercise: no adverse effects AND pain relief. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center is always
concerned about balance issues in our chiropractic patients.
Exercise that helps with Baton Rouge balance is so important.
