Now, let’s look at exercise to not only stabilize YOU and your fellow Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients during times of stress as COVID-19 may triggering, but exercise to stabilize your spine while and following your Fernandina Beach back pain episodes.


Stability and balance go together. Stability alludes to how balance is controlled. Reduced balance control is linked with reduced stability. Balance or rather a disruption of balance or the sense of stability is often seen in or reported by musculoskeletal pain patients like those with back pain and neck pain. Therefore, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic observes each chiropractic patient meticulously during their entire visit door to door. Observation is a valuable tool in the management of back pain and related leg pain, Fernandina Beach neck pain and any related arm pain. Researchers studied this topic of balance and its disruption, too. Recent studies reported on patients’ gait speed, their “timed up and go test” ability, step test and “sit-to-stand test.” Amelia Chiropractic Clinic appreciates these tests. Some of our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients will wonder what we’re examining when we have them sit in a chair and stand up from the chair and time them! We chiropractors are an inquisitive group! Trials like these tell your Fernandina Beach chiropractor a lot about your spinal condition. A recent analysis of such studies reported that manual therapy like spinal manipulation offered at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic improved short-term stability measures. (1) Rest assured more studies like these are underway, and one explicitly looking at how Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction alters these tests and eventually the balance and stability of back pain patients is in its first trial.


Many trials have previously shown that many chronic musculoskeletal pain patients experience falls and have balance issues. That is a big issue for older patients with such musculoskeletal pain as they often also have stiffer, less coordinated gait, and poorer balance and muscle strength. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic urges our patients to exercise for balance and stability.


The lumbar spine multifidus muscle is a recognized and most important stabilizer for the spine. Soccer players get this! Researchers measured their multifidus muscles during the soccer season. At rest while lying down, these players’ multifidus muscle thickness diminished. Those players with low back pain demonstrated significant change at rest. (2) Australian football players with low back pain were to have the same issue while standing and at rest. (3) Both studies said that body composition and body fat and mass were linked to the lumbar multifidus muscle size. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic has some exercise recommendations for our Fernandina Beach back pain patients to boost their multifidus muscles and increase their sense of balance and stability. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is ready to show them to you at your Fernandina Beach chiropractic visit!
