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

Back pain turns into the main focus when it rears its head. The term ‘back pain’ is quite generic though as back pain stems from the combined contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, and more. 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 Montreal back pain. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic highly recommends exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.

SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE

Instability affects balance. Back pain sufferers’ troubled 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. Those with lumbar spine instability demonstrated more problems with balance control, proprioception, fear of movement, increased pain, and functional ability than those who don’t have such instability. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic tests for instability in our Montreal 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 FOR SPINAL INSTABILITY AND BALANCE IMPROVEMENT

Exercise is a usual intervention for low back pain patients no matter the treatment plan. For subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is advantageous. Recently, 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 generated 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), thickened muscles of the transverse abdominis and lumbar multifidus, lessened functional disability, and reduced fear of movement. Bonuses of either exercise: no unpleasant side-effects AND pain relief. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is always checking for balance issues in our chiropractic patients. Exercise that improves Montreal balance is so important.
