Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is always
looking for relatable ways to address
West Palm Beach back pain patients’ questions. West Palm Beach back pain
patients like simple answers. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor at
Moses Chiropractic does, too. Read more about these factors that influence
your relief of West Palm Beach back pain, arm and leg pain.
CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE
Chronic non-specific West Palm Beach low back pain (LBP) poses
a huge socioeconomic problem although 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, more in-phase coordination,
lower ground reaction forces, higher stride-to-stride variability
and an elevated activity 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 observed.
Abnormal spine mobility is linked to 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 ways: elevated body fat, declined
muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait
speed, and balance problems. Particularly, insulin
resistance was correlated to increased body
fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research demonstrated
a strong 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. West Palm Beach back pain patients are like them! These findings might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection
hypothesis. (3) Moses Chiropractic helps West Palm Beach chiropractic patients
with West Palm Beach back pain relief and with their desire to fix
confounding metabolic issues.
Moses Chiropractic encourages West Palm Beach
chiropractic patients to exercise even simple
walking. Researchers assessed 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, used 60 minutes once a week, showed
improved pain and disability and increased
spine muscle endurance. This report revealed that a
9-week progressive exercise therapy program can improve physical
health and reduce the incidence of cervical
disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal
pain. (4) Moses Chiropractic highlights that exercise is effective!
West Palm Beach back pain in older folks successfully lowers balance ability.
Moses Chiropractic doesn’t view this as a good
thing! These patients exhibited reduced
reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance
control giving rise to a deficit
of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Moreover, elderly
patients with low back pain are at increased risk for lower leg
proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Moses Chiropractic definitely
evaluates West Palm Beach back pain patients for problems
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
issue is low hand grip strength in women aged
over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly related to the presence of low back pain. (6) Moses Chiropractic
finds this curious, but it is documented!
