Your Augusta chiropractor is continually looking for relatable stories to address Augusta back pain patients’ questions. Augusta back pain patients like simple answers. Your Augusta chiropractor at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic does, too. Read more about these factors that guide your relief of Augusta back pain, arm and leg pain.
CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE
Chronic non-specific Augusta low back pain (LBP) presents 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, higher stride-to-stride variability and a higher activity in spine muscles. Impaired motor control during walking is indicated by 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 linked to metabolic syndrome (MetS) (2), and MetS involves a collection of cardiovascular risk factors (insulin resistance, hypertension, glucose intolerance, low HDL-C, and hypertriglyceridemia. (7) DMS and MetS are associated in six domains: increased body fat, reduced muscle mass, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance issues. Particularly, insulin resistance was correlated to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research demonstrated a compelling relationship between DMS and the existence of MetS and its mechanisms 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. Augusta back pain patients are like them! These discoveries might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic helps Augusta chiropractic patients with Augusta back pain relief and with their wish to address confounding metabolic issues.
Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic encourages Augusta 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 nine-week stabilization exercise therapy program, performed 60 minutes once a week, showed enhanced 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 incidence of cervical disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic emphasizes that exercise is helpful!
Augusta back pain in older folks effectively lowers balance ability. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic doesn’t view this as a good event! These patients presented reduced reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance control causing a deficit 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) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic definitely evaluates Augusta back pain patients for problems with balance.
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
One more interesting finding is low hand grip strength in women aged over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly associated with the existence of low back pain. (6) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic finds this interesting, but it’s documented!
