Auburn Stability is Important for Back Painand for Coping Today

Just a quick note on the current COVID-19. The CDC recommendations about coping are good. Take care of yourself, EXERCISE, eat healthy, breathe, connect, and hope. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. suggests the same…and adds see your Auburn chiropractor for extra stabilization and balance!

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. shares CDC advice on how to cope with coronavirus stress. 


Now, let’s consider exercise to not only stabilize YOU and your fellow Auburn chiropractic patients during times like these may provoking, but exercise to stabilize your spine during and after Auburn back pain episodes.


Stability and balance go together. Stability refers to how balance is controlled. Inhibited balance control is connected with reduced stability. Balance or rather a loss of balance or the sense of stability is often noticed in or reported by musculoskeletal pain patients like those with back pain and neck pain. For this reason, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. observes each chiropractic patient carefully during their entire visit from the time you walk through the front door, down the hall to your treatment room, and out the door again. Observation is a helpful tool in the management of back pain and related leg pain, Auburn 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. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. appreciates these tests. Some of our Auburn chiropractic patients will be curious about what we’re looking for 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 an inquisitive group! Tests like these reveal to your Auburn chiropractor a lot about your spinal condition. A recent analysis of similar studies stated that manual therapy like spinal manipulation offered at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. improved short-term stability measures. (1) Be certain more studies like these are in progress, and one specifically studying how Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction influences these tests and ultimately the balance and stability of back pain patients is in its first trial.


Many trials have previously demonstrated 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 poorer balance and muscle strength. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. recommends exercise for balance and stability.


The lumbar spine multifidus muscle is a well-known and very important stabilizer for the spine. Soccer players get this! Researchers studied their multifidus muscles during the 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 noted that body composition and body fat and mass were linked to the lumbar multifidus muscle size. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. has some exercise recommendations for our Auburn back pain patients to boost their multifidus muscles and improve their sense of balance and stability. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is ready to give them to you at your Auburn chiropractic visit!
