CAUSES OF Auburn BALANCE ISSUES

Chronic low back pain sufferers have more concern when performing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can move from sitting to standing and standing to sitting at a reasonable speed. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation necessary to perform these movements. (1) Chronic low back pain patients with lumbar spine instability are found to have more postural sway with their eyes closed or their vision is somehow concealed. (2) Pain influences balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly related to postural balance. Intense low back pain is associated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. helps with both pain and balance in Auburn chiropractic patients.
