Chronic low back pain sufferers have more concern when doing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can go 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 needed 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 in some way obscured. (2) Pain affects balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is associated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness helps with both pain and balance in Malverne chiropractic patients.


Of note, the number 1 and 2 reasons over-age-65-years patients get care from a chiropractor like your Malverne chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches.
