What Factors Play A Role in Ashburn Back Pain, Arm Pain And Leg Pain?

Your Ashburn chiropractor is continually on alert for interesting ways to address Ashburn back pain patients’ questions. Ashburn back pain patients like easy answers. Your Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn does, too. Check out these factors that influence your relief of Ashburn back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Ashburn low back pain (LBP) presents a major socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one of the mechanisms which was shown by a lower movement amplitude of the pelvis, more in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, greater stride-to-stride variability and an elevated motion 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 encompasses a grouping 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 problems. Particularly, insulin resistance was correlated to higher body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study demonstrated a compelling relationship between DMS and the presence of MetS and its components 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. Ashburn back pain patients are share the same issues! These discoveries might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn helps Ashburn chiropractic patients with Ashburn back pain relief and with their wish to fix confounding metabolic issues.


Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn encourages Ashburn chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. Researchers 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 nine-week stabilization exercise therapy program, used 60 minutes weekly, revealed improved pain and disability and increased spine muscle endurance. This report confirmed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can improve physical health and decrease the prevalence of cervical disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn highlights that exercise is helpful!


Ashburn back pain in older folks successfully lowers balance ability. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn doesn’t see this as a good event! These patients exhibited reduced dependence on ankle and hip strategy for balance control causing a discrepancy of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Moreover, older patients with low back pain are at higher risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn certainly evaluates Ashburn back pain patients for issues with balance.


Another 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn finds this curious, but it’s published!
