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

Back pain turns into the main focus when it happens. The term ‘back pain’ is quite 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 useful in supporting the spine. Exercise continued to show just how beneficial it is in managing spinal instability that accompanies Fernandina Beach back pain. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic endoreses exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.


Instability affects balance. Back pain sufferers’ poor balance may be caused by 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 demonstrated greater problems with balance control, proprioception, fear of movement, more pain, and functional ability than sufferers without such instability. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic tests for instability in our Fernandina Beach 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 is a usual intervention for low back pain patients whatever the treatment plan. For subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is valuable. Not long ago, 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 shown by single leg standing with eyes open and closed on stable and unstable surfaces), muscle thickness of the transverse abdominis and lumbar multifidus, reduced functional disability, and less fear of movement. Bonuses of either exercise: no unpleasant side-effects AND pain relief. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is always checking for balance issues in our chiropractic patients. Exercise that improves Fernandina Beach balance is so important.
