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

Your Watertown chiropractor is always looking for relatable stories to answer Watertown back pain patients’ questions. Watertown back pain patients like easy answers. Your Watertown chiropractor at Watertown Wellness Center does, too. Check out these factors that influence your relief of Watertown back pain, arm and leg pain.

CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE

Chronic non-specific Watertown low back pain (LBP) is a major socioeconomic problem even though 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 motion in spine muscles. Impaired motor control during walking is reflected in greater 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 associated with metabolic syndrome (MetS) (2), and MetS encompasses 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, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance problems. Notably, insulin resistance was related to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study demonstrated a compelling relationship between DMS and the existence of MetS and its mechanisms 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. Watertown back pain patients are share the same issues! These findings might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Watertown Wellness Center helps Watertown chiropractic patients with Watertown back pain relief and with their desire to address complicating metabolic issues.

EXERCISE

Watertown Wellness Center encourages Watertown 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 once a week, revealed improved pain and disability and increased spine muscle endurance. This report revealed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can enhance physical health and decrease the prevalence of cervical disability and low back pain in young people with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Watertown Wellness Center emphasizes that exercise is effective!

BALANCE CONTROL

Watertown back pain in older folks successfully lowers balance ability. Watertown Wellness Center doesn’t see this as a beneficial event! These patients showed reduced reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance control resulting in a deficit of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Also, elderly patients with low back pain are at higher risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Watertown Wellness Center definitely tests Watertown back pain patients for issues with balance.

HAND GRIP STRENGTH

One more thought-provoking issue is low hand grip strength in women aged over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly associated with the presence of low back pain. (6) Watertown Wellness Center finds this interesting, but it’s published!
