Tarrytown Stability is Important for Back Painand for Coping Today

Just a short note on the current COVID-19. The CDC recommendations about coping are good. Take care of yourself, EXERCISE, eat healthy, breathe, connect, and hope. Tarrytown Chiropractic endorses the same…and adds see your Tarrytown chiropractor for extra stabilization and balance!

Tarrytown Chiropractic shares CDC advice on how to cope with coronavirus stress. 


Now, let us look at exercise to not only stabilize YOU and your fellow Tarrytown chiropractic patients during times like these may triggering, but exercise to stabilize your spine while and following your Tarrytown back pain episodes.


Stability and balance go together. Stability alludes to how balance is controlled. Inhibited balance control is associated with decreased stability. Balance or rather a disruption of balance or the sense of stability is often seen in or described by musculoskeletal pain patients like those with back pain and neck pain. Therefore, Tarrytown Chiropractic observes every chiropractic patient carefully throughout their entire visit door to door. Observation is a valuable tool in the management of back pain and related leg pain, Tarrytown neck pain and any related arm pain. Researchers examined this topic of balance and its disruption, too. Recent studies described patients’ gait speed, their “timed up and go test” ability, step test and “sit-to-stand test.” Tarrytown Chiropractic appreciates these tests. Some of our Tarrytown chiropractic patients will wonder what we are examining when we ask them to sit in a chair and stand up from the chair and time them! We chiropractors are a funny lot! Trials like these reveal to your Tarrytown chiropractor a lot about your spinal condition. Another analysis of similar studies found that manual therapy like spinal manipulation used at Tarrytown Chiropractic improved short-term stability measures. (1) Be certain more studies like these are underway, and one explicitly looking at how Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction influences these tests and eventually the balance and stability of back pain patients is in an initial clinical trial.


Many trials have already demonstrated that many chronic musculoskeletal pain patients suffer falls and have balance issues. That is a foremost issue for older patients with such musculoskeletal pain as they manytimes also have stiffer, less coordinated gait, and worse balance and muscle strength. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic recommends exercise for balance and stability.


The lumbar spine multifidus muscle is a well-known and very vital stabilizer for the spine. Soccer players get this! Researchers studied their multifidus muscles during the soccer season. At rest while lying down, these players’ multifidus muscle thickness diminished. Those players with low back pain exhibited significant change at rest. (2) Australian football players with low back pain were to have the same issue while standing and at rest. (3) Both studies noted that body composition and body fat and mass were connected with the lumbar multifidus muscle size. Tarrytown Chiropractic has some exercise recommendations for our Tarrytown back pain patients to strengthen their multifidus muscles and improve their sense of balance and stability. Tarrytown Chiropractic is ready to share them with you at your Tarrytown chiropractic visit!
