Chronic low back pain sufferers experience more trouble performing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can go from sitting to standing and standing to sitting at a reasonable rate. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation necessary to perform these movements. (1) Chronic low back pain patients with lumbar spine instability are known to have more postural sway when their eyes are closed or their vision is in some way concealed. (2) Pain affects balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly related to postural balance. Intense low back pain is affiliated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic helps with both pain and balance in Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients.
