Montreal Stability is Critical for Back Painand for Coping Today

Just a short note on the current COVID-19. The CDC recommendations about best strategies to cope are good. Take care of yourself, EXERCISE, eat healthy, breathe, connect, and hope. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic advocates the same…and also suggests that you see your Montreal chiropractor for extra stabilization and balance!

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic shares CDC advice on how to cope with coronavirus stress. 


Now, let’s look at exercise to not only stabilize YOU and your fellow Montreal chiropractic patients during times of stress as COVID-19 may triggering, but exercise to stabilize your spine while and following your Montreal 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 loss of balance or the sense of stability is often seen in or reported by musculoskeletal pain patients who experience back pain and neck pain. Therefore, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic watches each 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, Montreal neck pain and any related arm pain. Researchers studied this topic of balance and its disruption, too. New studies reported on patients’ gait speed, their “timed up and go test” ability, step test and “sit-to-stand test.” Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic appreciates these tests. Some of our Montreal chiropractic patients will be curious about what we are examining when we have them sit in a chair and stand up from the chair and note how long it takes them to do it! We chiropractors are a funny lot! Trials like these tell your Montreal chiropractor much about your spinal condition. A recent analysis of similar studies reported that manual therapy like spinal manipulation offered at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic improved short-term stability measures. (1) Rest assured more studies like these are underway, and one specifically 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 already demonstrated that many chronic musculoskeletal pain patients suffer falls and have balance issues. That is a foremost problem for older patients with such musculoskeletal pain as they often also have stiffer, less coordinated gait, and poorer balance and muscle strength. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic urges our patients to exercise for balance and stability.


The lumbar spine multifidus muscle is a known and most critical stabilizer for the spine. Soccer players get this! Researchers examined 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 associated with the lumbar multifidus muscle size. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has some exercise recommendations for our Montreal back pain patients to boost their multifidus muscles and improve their sense of balance and stability. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is ready to show them to you at your Montreal chiropractic visit!
