Your Easley chiropractor is continually looking for interesting ways to address Easley back pain patients’ questions. Easley back pain patients like simple answers. Your Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic does, too. Read more about these factors that influence your relief of Easley back pain, arm and leg pain.
CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE
Chronic non-specific Easley low back pain (LBP) presents a huge socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one issue 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 an elevated action in spine muscles. Impaired motor control during walking is indicated by 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 observed. Abnormal spine mobility is linked to 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 related in six domains: elevated body fat, reduced muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance issues. Particularly, insulin resistance was related to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study revealed a strong relationship between DMS and the existence of MetS and its components 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. Easley back pain patients are similar to them! These discoveries might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Young Chiropractic helps Easley chiropractic patients with Easley back pain relief and with their wish to fix complicating metabolic issues.
Young Chiropractic encourages Easley chiropractic patients to exercise even doing something as simple as walk. Researchers assessed the outcomes 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, performed 60 minutes once a week, showed enhanced pain and disability and increased spine muscle endurance. This study revealed 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) Young Chiropractic emphasizes that exercise is effective!
Easley back pain in older folks successfully reduces balance ability. Young Chiropractic does not see this as a beneficial thing! These patients exhibited reduced 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 increased risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Young Chiropractic definitely evaluates Easley back pain patients for issues with balance.
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
One more interesting issue is low hand grip strength in women aged over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly associated with the existence of low back pain. (6) Young Chiropractic finds this interesting, but it is documented!
