Severna Park 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 quite general though as back pain arises from the combined contributions of muscles, nerves, bones, and more. Low back muscles may be frail and/or unstable making them less useful in supporting the spine. Exercise continued to show just how beneficial it is in managing spinal instability associated with Severna Park back pain. Back And Neck Care Center endoreses exercise as something a back pain sufferer can do to help him/herself.


Instability impacts balance. Back pain sufferers’ troubled balance may result from badly 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 who don’t have instability, and healthy subjects. Sufferers with lumbar spine instability demonstrated more issues with balance control, proprioception, fear of movement, increased pain, and functional ability than those without such instability. (1) Back And Neck Care Center tests for instability in our Severna Park back pain patients and creates a Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management  treatment plan that encompasses pain relieving spinal manipulation, nutrition, and exercise.


Exercise is a usual intervention for low back pain patients whatever the treatment plan. For subacute NSLBP sufferers, exercise is valuable. Not long ago, two versions of exercise were compared: core stabilization and strengthening exercise. Four weeks of training for 30 minutes a session three times a week showed that core stabilization produced significantly more improvement than strengthening. Core stabilization improved proprioception, balance (as shown by single leg standing with eyes open and closed on stable and unstable surfaces), thickened muscles of the transverse abdominis and lumbar multifidus, reduced functional disability, and decreased fear of movement. Bonuses affiliated with both types of exercise: no adverse effects AND pain relief. (2) Back And Neck Care Center is always concerned about balance issues in our chiropractic patients. Exercise that improves Severna Park balance is so important.
