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

Your Brooks chiropractor is always on alert for interesting stories to address Brooks back pain patients’ questions. Brooks back pain patients like easy answers. Your Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic does, too. Read more about these factors that guide your relief of Brooks back pain, arm and leg pain.

CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE

Chronic non-specific Brooks low back pain (LBP) is a major socioeconomic problem although the mechanisms are not yet fully understood. Impaired motor control is one issue 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 action 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 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 related in six ways: increased body fat, declined muscle mass, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance issues. Notably, insulin resistance was related to higher body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study revealed 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. Brooks back pain patients are share the same issues! These findings might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps Brooks chiropractic patients with Brooks back pain relief and with their wish to address complicating metabolic issues.

EXERCISE

Soft Health and Healing Clinic urges Brooks chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. Researchers evaluated the outcomes 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 nine-week stabilization exercise therapy program, performed 60 minutes once a week, revealed improved 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 incidence of cervical disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Soft Health and Healing Clinic emphasizes that exercise is effective!

BALANCE CONTROL

Brooks back pain in elderly effectively lowers balance ability. Soft Health and Healing Clinic does not see this as a beneficial thing! These patients showed reduced dependence on ankle and hip strategy for balance control giving rise to a discrepancy of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Also, older patients with low back pain are at increased risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Soft Health and Healing Clinic certainly tests Brooks back pain patients for issues with balance.

HAND GRIP STRENGTH

Another interesting finding is low hand grip strength in women who are over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly associated with the existence of low back pain. (6) Soft Health and Healing Clinic finds this curious, but it is published!
