Chronic low back pain sufferers experience 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 practical speed. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation necessary to do these movements. (1) Chronic low back pain patients with lumbar spine instability are noted to have more postural sway when their eyes are 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center helps with both pain and balance in Manahawkin chiropractic patients.


Certainly, the number 1 and 2 reasons over-age-65-years patients get care from a chiropractor like your Manahawkin chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows the risks associated with falls and understands the impact of pain and balance on fall risk.
