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

Your Oxford chiropractor is always on alert for interesting stories to answer Oxford back pain patients’ questions. Oxford back pain patients like easy answers. Your Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic does, too. Check out these factors that guide your relief of Oxford back pain, arm and leg pain.

CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE

Chronic non-specific Oxford low back pain (LBP) poses a huge socioeconomic problem although the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one issue which was indicated by a lower movement amplitude of the pelvis, additional in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, greater stride-to-stride variability and an elevated motion in spine muscles. Impaired motor control during walking is indicated by 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 associated in six ways: increased body fat, declined muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance problems. Notably, insulin resistance was linked to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research showed a strong 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. Oxford back pain patients are like them! These discoveries may well back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic helps Oxford chiropractic patients with Oxford back pain relief and with their desire to address complicating metabolic issues.

EXERCISE

Satterwhite Chiropractic urges Oxford chiropractic patients to exercise even doing something as simple as walk. Researchers assessed 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, showed enhanced pain and disability and intensified spine muscle endurance. This study revealed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can improve physical health and reduce the prevalence of cervical disability and low back pain in young people with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic emphasizes that exercise is helpful!

BALANCE CONTROL

Oxford back pain in elderly effectively lowers balance ability. Satterwhite Chiropractic doesn’t view this as a good event! These patients showed decreased dependence 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 higher risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Satterwhite Chiropractic certainly evaluates Oxford back pain patients for problems with balance.

HAND GRIP STRENGTH

Another interesting finding 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic finds this curious, but it’s documented!
