Years ago before balance therapy was popular Dr. Janda was recommending many of his back pain patients receive balance therapy. Dr. Janda was a neurologist from Prague and considered one foremost rehabilitation doctors in the world. Poor balance contributes to lack of spinal support and resultant nervous system pressure. Imagine a 90 year old man running across the road and racing a 20 year old man.They both stumble in the same hole however the 90 year falls and the 20 year old does not look affected.The reason is the reaction speed or coordination of the muscles. The good news is this can be re-trained and improved. Simple balance tests can determine if balance therapy will help your spinal support.
