CAUSES OF Ashburn BALANCE ISSUES

Chronic low back pain sufferers have more trouble 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 reasonable rate. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation needed to perform 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 obscured. (2) Pain influences balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is related to a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn helps with both pain and balance in Ashburn chiropractic patients.
