Chronic low back pain sufferers experience more trouble doing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can change from sitting to standing and standing to sitting at a realistic speed. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation necessary to do these movements. (1) Chronic low back pain patients with lumbar spine instability are noted to have more postural sway with their eyes closed or their vision is in some way obscured. (2) Pain affects balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is related to a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center helps with both pain and balance in Paramus chiropractic patients.


Of note, the number 1 and 2 reasons over-age-65-years patients obtain care from a chiropractor like your Paramus chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches.
