Your Severna Park chiropractor is always
on alert for relatable stories to answer
Severna Park back pain patients’ questions. Severna Park back pain
patients like easy answers. Your Severna Park chiropractor at
Back And Neck Care Center does, too. Check out these factors that influence
your relief of Severna Park back pain, arm and leg pain.
CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE
Chronic non-specific Severna Park low back pain (LBP) presents
a major socioeconomic problem even though the
mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is
one issue which was indicated by a reduced
movement amplitude of the pelvis, more in-phase coordination,
lower ground reaction forces, greater stride-to-stride variability
and a higher activity in spine muscles.
Impaired motor control during walking is indicated by higher
activity of the spine muscles which results in a stiffened lumbar-pelvic
region. (1) Dysmobility Syndrome (DMS) (abnormal spine motion) of the
musculoskeletal system and adverse health problems in older population is seen.
Abnormal spine mobility is linked to metabolic
syndrome (MetS) (2), and MetS involves a grouping
of cardiovascular risk factors (insulin resistance, hypertension, glucose
intolerance, low HDL-C, and hypertriglyceridemia. (7) DMS and MetS are related
in six ways: increased body fat, declined
muscle mass, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait
speed, and balance issues. Notably, insulin
resistance was linked to higher body
fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research revealed
a compelling relationship between DMS and the presence
of MetS and its mechanisms in the elderly population. (2)
Further, low high density lipid (HDL) cholesterol and
high low density cholesterol/high density lipid cholesterol ratio were
significantly associated with low back pain in a middle-aged Japanese
population. Severna Park back pain patients are similar to them! These findings might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection
hypothesis. (3) Back And Neck Care Center helps Severna Park chiropractic patients
with Severna Park back pain relief and with their wish to address
complicating metabolic issues.
Back And Neck Care Center encourages Severna Park
chiropractic patients to exercise even doing something as simple as walk. A study assessed the outcomes
of an exercise therapy program on pain and physical dimension of health-related
quality of life for 57 young adults of an average age of 21
with musculoskeletal pain. A 9-week stabilization exercise therapy
program, used 60 minutes weekly, showed
improved pain and disability and increased
spine muscle endurance. This study revealed that a
9-week progressive exercise therapy program can enhance physical
health and decrease the incidence of cervical
disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal
pain. (4) Back And Neck Care Center emphasizes that exercise is effective!
Severna Park back pain in older folks successfully lowers balance ability.
Back And Neck Care Center does not see this as a beneficial
event! These patients presented decreased
reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance
control giving rise to a deficit
of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Also, elderly
patients with low back pain are at higher risk for lower leg
proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Back And Neck Care Center definitely
tests Severna Park back pain patients for issues
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
One more stimulating
finding is low hand grip strength in women aged
over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly associated
with the presence of low back pain. (6) Back And Neck Care Center
finds this curious, but it is documented!
