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

Back pain becomes the focus when it occurs. The term ‘back pain’ is very generic though as back pain stems from the mingled 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 Murfreesboro back pain. Most Chiropractic Clinic endoreses exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.


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. Sufferers with lumbar spine instability showed more problems with balance control, proprioception, fear of movement, increased pain, and functional ability than sufferers without such instability. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic checks for instability in our Murfreesboro 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 is a common intervention for low back pain patients regardless of the treatment plan. For subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is of value. Recently, two types 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 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, lessened functional disability, and decreased fear of movement. Bonuses of either exercise: no adverse effects AND pain relief. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic is always concerned about balance issues in our chiropractic patients. Exercise that helps with Murfreesboro balance is so important.
