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 LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE
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 linked to 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
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
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!
