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

Back pain becomes the focus when it happens. The term ‘back pain’ is quite generic though as back pain stems from the combined contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, etc. Low back muscles may be weak and/or unstable leacing them less helpful in supporting the spine. Exercise repeatedly shows just how beneficial it is in addressing spinal instability associated with Auburn back pain. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.


Instability affects balance. Back pain sufferers’ poor balance may result from poorly coordinated neuromuscular control and altered spine stability. A recent study contrasted 3 groups:  subacute non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) sufferers with lumbar instability, those without instability, and healthy subjects. Sufferers with lumbar spine instability demonstrated more problems with balance control, proprioception, fear of movement, more pain, and functional ability than those who don’t have such instability. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. checks for instability in our Auburn 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 usual intervention for low back pain patients regardless of the treatment plan. For subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is beneficial. Recently, two types of exercise were assessed: core stabilization and strengthening exercise. A month of training for 30 minutes a session three times a week demonstrated that core stabilization generated significantly more improvement than strengthening. Core stabilization enhanced proprioception, balance (as shown by single leg standing with eyes open and closed on stable and unstable surfaces), muscle thickness of the transverse abdominis and lumbar multifidus, reduced functional disability, and reduced fear of movement. Bonuses of either exercise: no adverse effects AND pain relief. (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is always checking for balance issues in our chiropractic patients. Exercise that improves Auburn balance is so important.
