Chronic low back pain sufferers experience more trouble doing “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 realistic rate. 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 noted to have more postural sway with their eyes closed or their vision is somehow obscured. (2) Pain influences balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly related to postural balance. Intense low back pain is affiliated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries helps with both pain and balance in Manchester chiropractic patients.
