Your Preston chiropractor is continually
on alert for interesting stories to answer
Preston back pain patients’ questions. Preston back pain
patients like easy answers. Your Preston chiropractor at
Chiropractic Associates does, too. Check out these factors that influence
your relief of Preston back pain, arm and leg pain.
CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE
Chronic non-specific Preston low back pain (LBP) poses
a huge socioeconomic problem even though the
mechanisms are not yet fully understood. Impaired motor control is
one of the mechanisms which was shown by a reduced
movement amplitude of the pelvis, more 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 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, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait
speed, and balance problems. Notably, insulin
resistance was linked to increased body
fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research 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. Preston back pain patients are like them! These findings may
well support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection
hypothesis. (3) Chiropractic Associates helps Preston chiropractic patients
with Preston back pain relief and with their wish to fix
complicating metabolic issues.
Chiropractic Associates urges Preston
chiropractic patients to exercise even doing something as simple as walk. Researchers evaluated the effects
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 nine-week stabilization exercise therapy
program, performed 60 minutes once a week, revealed
improved pain and disability and intensified
spine muscle endurance. This report 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 people with musculoskeletal
pain. (4) Chiropractic Associates highlights that exercise is effective!
Preston back pain in elderly successfully lowers balance ability.
Chiropractic Associates doesn’t view this as a beneficial
event! These patients showed decreased
dependence on ankle and hip strategy for balance
control resulting in a discrepancy
of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Moreover, older
patients with low back pain are at increased risk for lower leg
proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Chiropractic Associates definitely
checks Preston back pain patients for problems
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
One more interesting
finding is low hand grip strength in women who are
over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly related to the presence of low back pain. (6) Chiropractic Associates
see this as this curious, but it is published!
