Chronic low back pain sufferers experience more concern when doing “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 realistic 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 found to have more postural sway with their eyes closed or their vision is in some way concealed. (2) Pain influences balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly related to postural balance. Intense low back pain is related to a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic helps with both pain and balance in Williamson chiropractic patients.


Of note, the top two reasons over-age-65-years patients obtain care from a chiropractor like your Williamson chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches.
