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

Back pain turns into the main focus when it takes over every thought in a day. The term ‘back pain’ is quite general though as back pain stems from the united contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, etc. Low back muscles may be frail and/or unstable leacing them less helpful in supporting the spine. Exercise continued to show just how beneficial it is in addressing spinal instability that accompanies Paramus back pain. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center encourages exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.

SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE

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 who don’t have instability, and healthy subjects. Sufferers with lumbar spine instability showed more problems with balance control, proprioception, fear of movement, increased pain, and functional ability than sufferers who don’t have such instability. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center tests for instability in our Paramus back pain patients and creates a Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management  treatment plan that involves pain relieving spinal manipulation, nutrition, and exercise.

EXERCISE FOR SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Exercise is a common intervention for low back pain patients no matter the treatment plan. For subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is valuable. Recently, two types of exercise were compared: core stabilization and strengthening exercise. A month of training for 30 minutes a session three times a week demonstrated that core stabilization generated significantly more improvement than strengthening. Core stabilization enhanced proprioception, balance (as demonstrated 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 decreased fear of movement. Bonuses affiliated with both types of exercise: no unpleasant side-effects AND pain relief.
