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

Your Largo chiropractor is continually on alert for relatable ways to address Largo back pain patients’ questions. Largo back pain patients like simple answers. Your Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc does, too. Check out these factors that guide your relief of Largo back pain, arm and leg pain.

CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE

Chronic non-specific Largo low back pain (LBP) is a huge socioeconomic problem although the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one issue which was shown by a lower 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 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 associated with metabolic syndrome (MetS) (2), and MetS involves a grouping of cardiovascular risk factors (insulin resistance, hypertension, glucose intolerance, low HDL-C, and hypertriglyceridemia. (7) DMS and MetS are related in six domains: increased body fat, reduced muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance problems. Notably, insulin resistance was related to higher body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research demonstrated a strong relationship between DMS and the existence of MetS and its factors 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. Largo back pain patients are similar to them! These discoveries might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps Largo chiropractic patients with Largo back pain relief and with their desire to address confounding metabolic issues.

EXERCISE

Hollstrom & Associates Inc encourages Largo chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. Researchers assessed the outcomes 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 9-week stabilization exercise therapy program, performed 60 minutes weekly, revealed enhanced pain and disability and intensified 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 people with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc highlights that exercise is helpful!

BALANCE CONTROL

Largo back pain in older folks effectively reduces balance ability. Hollstrom & Associates Inc doesn’t view this as a beneficial event! These patients showed reduced dependence on ankle and hip strategy for balance control causing a discrepancy of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Moreover, elderly patients with low back pain are at higher risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Hollstrom & Associates Inc certainly evaluates Largo 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc see this as this curious, but it’s published!
