Paramus Stability is Critical for Back Painand for Coping Today

Just a short note on the current COVID-19. The CDC recommendations about coping are good. Take care of yourself, EXERCISE, eat healthy, breathe, connect, and hope. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center endorses the same…and adds see your Paramus chiropractor for extra stabilization and balance!

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center shares CDC advice on how to cope with coronavirus stress. 


Now, let us consider exercise to not only stabilize YOU and your fellow Paramus chiropractic patients during times like these may triggering, but exercise to stabilize your spine while and following your Paramus back pain episodes.


Stability and balance go together. Stability refers to how balance is controlled. Reduced balance control is connected with decreased stability. Balance or rather a loss of balance or the sense of stability is often noticed in or reported by musculoskeletal pain patients who experience back pain and neck pain. Therefore, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center observes every chiropractic patient carefully during their whole visit door to door. Observation is a helpful tool in the management of back pain and related leg pain, Paramus neck pain and any related arm pain. Researchers examined this topic of balance and its disruption, too. Recent studies described patients’ gait speed, their “timed up and go test” ability, step test and “sit-to-stand test.” Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center likes these tests. Some of our Paramus chiropractic patients will be curious about what we’re looking for when we ask them to sit in a chair and stand up from the chair and note how long it takes them to do it! We chiropractors are an inquisitive group! Tests like these reveal to your Paramus chiropractor a lot about your spinal condition. Another analysis of similar studies found that manual therapy like spinal manipulation used at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center improved short-term stability measures. (1) Be confident additional studies like these are in progress, and one specifically examining how Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction alters these tests and ultimately the balance and stability of back pain patients is in an initial clinical trial.


Many trials have already demonstrated that numerous chronic musculoskeletal pain patients suffer falls and have balance issues. That is a big problem for older patients with such musculoskeletal pain as they manytimes also have stiffer, less coordinated gait, and worse balance and muscle strength. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center urges our patients to exercise for balance and stability.


The lumbar spine multifidus muscle is a recognized and most vital stabilizer for the spine. Soccer players get this! Researchers studied their multifidus muscles throughout soccer season. At rest while lying down, these players’ multifidus muscle thickness decreased. Those players with low back pain showed 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. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center has some exercise recommendations for our Paramus back pain patients to boost their multifidus muscles and increase their sense of balance and stability. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is ready to give them to you at your Paramus chiropractic visit!
