CAUSES OF Colorado Springs BALANCE ISSUES

Chronic low back pain sufferers experience more trouble 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 reasonable rate. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation necessary to perform 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 somehow obscured. (2) Pain affects balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is affiliated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps with both pain and balance in Colorado Springs chiropractic patients.
