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.
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!
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
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
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!
