CAUSES OF Burlington and Hamilton BALANCE ISSUES

Chronic low back pain sufferers have more concern when performing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can change from sitting to standing and standing to sitting at a practical rate. 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 with their eyes closed or their vision is in some way 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) Spinal Care Clinic helps with both pain and balance in Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients.
