Auburn back pain patients’ questions. Auburn back pain
patients like simple answers. Your Auburn chiropractor at
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. does, too. Read more about these factors that guide
your relief of Auburn back pain, arm and leg pain.
CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE
Chronic non-specific Auburn low back pain (LBP) is
a huge socioeconomic problem although the
mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is
one of the mechanisms which was indicated by a reduced
movement amplitude of the pelvis, additional in-phase coordination,
lower ground reaction forces, higher stride-to-stride variability
and a higher action in spine muscles.
Impaired motor control during walking is reflected in higher
activity of the spine muscles which leads to 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 affiliated with metabolic
syndrome (MetS) (2), and MetS involves a collection
of cardiovascular risk factors (insulin resistance, hypertension, glucose
intolerance, low HDL-C, and hypertriglyceridemia. (7) DMS and MetS are associated
in six ways: elevated body fat, reduced
muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait
speed, and balance issues. Notably, insulin
resistance was related to increased body
fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study demonstrated
a strong relationship between DMS and the presence
of MetS and its mechanisms in the elderly population. (2)
Additionally, 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. Auburn back pain patients are like them! These discoveries might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection
hypothesis. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. helps Auburn chiropractic patients
with Auburn back pain relief and with their desire to fix
complicating metabolic issues.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages Auburn
chiropractic patients to exercise even simple
walking. A study evaluated the effects
of an exercise therapy program on pain and physical dimension of health-related
quality of life for 57 young adults aged 21 average
with musculoskeletal pain. A 9-week stabilization exercise therapy
program, used 60 minutes weekly, revealed
enhanced pain and disability and intensified
spine muscle endurance. This study confirmed that a
9-week progressive exercise therapy program can enhance physical
health and reduce the prevalence of cervical
disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal
pain. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. highlights that exercise is effective!
Auburn back pain in older folks effectively lowers balance ability.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. does not view this as a beneficial
event! These patients exhibited reduced
reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance
control resulting in a deficit
of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Also, older
patients with low back pain are at increased risk for lower leg
proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. definitely
tests Auburn back pain patients for issues
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
One more thought-provoking
finding is low hand grip strength in women aged
over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly related to the existence of low back pain. (6) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
see this as this interesting, but it’s published!
