Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is continually
looking for interesting ways to address
Fort Wayne back pain patients’ questions. Fort Wayne back pain
patients like easy answers. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic does, too. Read more about these factors that influence
your relief of Fort Wayne back pain, arm and leg pain.
CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE
Chronic non-specific Fort Wayne low back pain (LBP) is
a huge 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, additional in-phase coordination,
lower ground reaction forces, greater stride-to-stride variability
and an elevated activity in spine muscles.
Impaired motor control during walking is reflected in 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 observed.
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: increased body fat, declined
muscle mass, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait
speed, and balance problems. Notably, insulin
resistance was related to higher body
fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study revealed
a strong relationship between DMS and the presence
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. Fort Wayne back pain patients are like them! These discoveries might back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection
hypothesis. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic helps Fort Wayne chiropractic patients
with Fort Wayne back pain relief and with their wish to address
confounding metabolic issues.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic encourages Fort Wayne
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 of an average age of 21
with musculoskeletal pain. A nine-week stabilization exercise therapy
program, performed 60 minutes weekly, revealed
enhanced pain and disability and increased
spine muscle endurance. This study 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 adults with musculoskeletal
pain. (4) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic emphasizes that exercise is effective!
Fort Wayne back pain in older folks successfully reduces balance ability.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic doesn’t view this as a good
thing! These patients showed reduced
dependence on ankle and hip strategy for balance
control causing a deficit
of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Also, older
patients with low back pain are at higher risk for lower leg
proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic definitely
evaluates Fort Wayne back pain patients for issues
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
One more interesting
issue is low hand grip strength in women aged
over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly related to the existence of low back pain. (6) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
see this as this curious, but it is documented!
