Murfreesboro Stability is Critical for Back Painand for Coping Today

Just a quick comment on the current COVID-19. The CDC recommendations regarding how to cope are good. Take care of yourself, EXERCISE, eat healthy, breathe, connect, and hope. Most Chiropractic Clinic recommends the same…and also suggests that you see your Murfreesboro chiropractor for extra stabilization and balance!

Now, let’s look at exercise to not only stabilize YOU and your fellow Murfreesboro chiropractic patients during times of stress as COVID-19 may triggering, but exercise to stabilize your spine during and after Murfreesboro back pain episodes.

STABILITY AND BALANCE AND BACK PAIN

Stability and balance go together. Stability alludes 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 observed in or reported by musculoskeletal pain patients who experience back pain and neck pain. For this reason, Most Chiropractic Clinic observes every chiropractic patient carefully during their whole visit from the time you walk in the front door, down the hall to your treatment room, and out the door again. Observation is a valuable tool in the management of back pain and related leg pain, Murfreesboro neck pain and any related arm pain. Researchers studied this topic of balance and its disruption, too. New studies described patients’ gait speed, their “timed up and go test” ability, step test and “sit-to-stand test.” Most Chiropractic Clinic appreciates these tests. Some of our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients will be curious about what we’re examining 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 a funny lot! Trials like these reveal to your Murfreesboro chiropractor a lot about your spinal condition. Another analysis of similar studies reported that manual therapy like spinal manipulation used at Most Chiropractic Clinic enhanced short-term stability measures. (1) Be certain more studies like these are in progress, and one explicitly looking at how Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction alters these tests and eventually the balance and stability of back pain patients is in an initial clinical trial.

BALANCE AND FALLS

Many trials have already documented that many chronic musculoskeletal pain patients experience falls and have balance issues. That is a big issue for older patients with such musculoskeletal pain as they manytimes also have stiffer, less coordinated gait, and worse balance and muscle strength. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic urges our patients to exercise for balance and stability.

EXERCISE FOR STABILITY AND BALANCE

The lumbar spine multifidus muscle is a well-known and very important stabilizer for the spine. Soccer players know this! Researchers studied their multifidus muscles throughout soccer season. At rest while lying down, these players’ multifidus muscle thickness diminished. Those players with low back pain exhibited significant change at rest. (2) Australian football players with low back pain were to have the same issue while standing as well as lying down. (3) Both studies said that body composition and body fat and mass were connected with the lumbar multifidus muscle size. Most Chiropractic Clinic has some exercise recommendations for our Murfreesboro back pain patients to boost their multifidus muscles and increase their sense of balance and stability. Most Chiropractic Clinic is ready to give them to you at your Murfreesboro chiropractic visit!
