Back pain becomes the focus when it
takes over every thought in a day. The term
‘back pain’ is quite generic though as back pain arises
from the united contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, etc. Low back muscles may be frail and/or unstable leacing
them less useful in supporting the spine. Exercise repeatedly shows its benefit in managing
spinal instability associated with Toronto
back pain. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre endoreses
exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.
SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE
Instability affects balance. Back pain
sufferers’ troubled balance may be caused by badly
coordinated neuromuscular control and altered spine stability. A recent
study contrasted 3 groups: subacute non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) sufferers with
lumbar instability, those who don’t have instability, and healthy
subjects. Sufferers with lumbar spine instability demonstrated
more problems with balance control, proprioception,
fear of movement, increased pain, and functional ability than those
who don’t have such instability. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre checks
for instability in our Toronto back pain patients and designs
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 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 enhanced 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, reduced
functional disability, and decreased fear of movement. Bonuses
of either exercise: no adverse effects AND pain relief. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is always
checking for balance issues in our chiropractic patients.
Exercise that helps with Toronto balance is so important.
